I must say, it seems a bit sledgehammer/nut to me.

I mainly use Samba 'cos it Just Works™ and my home server (back in
London) was running Windows Server 2008 (mainly as a learning
exercise, but also as it was built out of weird bits of old hardware
-- e.g. a Dell PATA/100 hardware RAID controller -- that was just
easier to get working with Windows).
