[Samba] filesystem of choice?

I'm setting up a new linux fileserver and I was wondering  if samba likes 
one filesystem more than another.  I have to format a 1.8Tb partition 
sometime today and I'll probably do ext3 unless samba prefers something 

We have a lot more linux users than Windows users but the Windows users have 
more problems with slow access.
