Question Creating an all Linux Network. Do you still use samba?

Hi All,
I've been thinking about what people do when they have all linux.. ie clients and servers. IE:- Still creating things like roaming profiles and being able to lock down machines via the profile and also non-roaming profiles etc etc. I've certainly done all this stuff with Samba when working with Linux and Windows but i wasn't sure how poeple do it when it comes to Linux servers and Linux Clients. Do you still use samba? so you just set-up the machine to automount to in-secure NFS or how do people do it nowa days?
