    neither the one nore the other is statet as "secure", but in case u want to
    share with windows you have to use samba!!!

    from my point of few: you have to install one service thats insecure, why
    install a second one?
    installing nfs would give u more perfomance for unix-clients but adds
    securityholes and u have 2 keep more software uptodate!

    instead of nfs qhy not try afs? should be more secure...

    sorry for my bad english,
    best regards
