NFS is an entirely reasonable choice for filesharing against OS X; netatalk
would be a comparitively better choice for MacOS 9 and previous versions.
People who have laptops or other network roaming environments will probably
prefer Samba. [How's that for providing a fair slant on what each protocol is
well-suited for? :-)]
What about the resource fork of the mac files. Does NFS provide a transparent way to preserve the resource fork?
