Backups would be fine, but I use the wlan to stream mp3s, videos,
uncompressed wav (from my recording studio), and mythtv recordings.
Basically everything is stored on a server in the basement. With nfs,
working with large files accross the network I saw cpu utilization of
100%. With cifs this has dropped to ~5-10%. The high cpu utulization
was the killer for me.
Note both the server and my audio workstation are running linux. Samba
was simply what worked best. The other upside is that all my audio
recording friends all have Windows PC based DAWs (contrary to some
popular beliefs, Macs are *not* a better platform for audio production)
and this solution allows them easy access as well, when they are
physically present that is.
