i) per-user versus per-machine authentication.
Samba does the former, as doies pc-nfs, regular nfs
does the latter.
ii) AD support - samba natively, NFS with external tools only
iii) etc, etc
Hard to quantify: On Linux, SMB performance improved
substantially with the new kernel.
Best done by benchmarking: I've used dbench to stress
nfs servers in the past, and that tools uses the
same loads and smbtorture, so you can do **oredr of
magnitude** compariusons. Just don't expect 10% differences
to be significant (;-))
