What's everyone's onion about NFS vs SMB? I have both working now, I just still have SMB enabled for my main HTPC in my living room. Is NFS enough of a better protocol do go home-wide using NFS instead of SMB?
I'd stress test both of them - in theory, NFS is supposed to have less overhead and if it works for you, I don't see why you can't use it 'home-wide', provided everything supports it.
+1 NFS for streaming. Much better than smb. Easy thing to test but with a huge variety of hardware it's always been distinctly faster for me.
