Not long ago, sshfs was being touted as the standard remote mount mechanism
for *buntu although I suppose any FUSE mountable filesystem could. I
personally tend to use it for any ad hoc connection but fall back to NFS
for (semi-)permanent connections across local network. By default you have
SSH or FTP from nautlius or nemo and they're simpler than CIFS. If you use
key based authentication sshfs it's incredibly simple.
