[Samba] Choosing ACL types for a file server

I'm installing a SMB file server for Windows/OSX/Linux clients. I installed
Samba and joined it to our AD domain (also running samba) as a member

I read I can use POSIX ACL or Windows ACL. Is there any ACL type better
than the other?

By reading the wiki, I understand the main difference between the two is I
have to manage the ACL directly on the server's filesystem with setfacl if
I choose POSIX ACL and with a Windows client if I choose Windows ACL.

Is there anything else?

Thank you!
