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,
