Hi, perhaps I can tell you something that will help you make your mind up.

Sometime in September, Samba 4.1 will be released, when it is, 4.0 will 
move to maintenance mode, 3.6 will only get security fixes and 3.5 will 
be discontinued.
So, do you really want to be basing a new installation on a version that 
is either discontinued or only getting security fixes?
