My personal file server is FreeBSD 3.4, and samba is working on it.
On other hand, I'm running RHL-Linux 2.4.0-test8 as my working
machine, and samba works on it too. So this is my life benchmarks.

But, ofcourse, it's my personal opinion (^o-)

At least, Linux's support against many types of devices, are lot
faster than that of *BSD. So, I do think Linux is good as long as
you use it as Client, or Device running machine.
