I would think that the hosting OS would know how to deal with both,  
since NFS mounts are treated no differently from Samba mounts  
superficially (each has their own separate drive letter, etc).

Cygwin also offers an NFS client if you want to look into that as  
well. SFU offers mount_nfs/nfsd for windows, which is basically  
unheard of using anything else.
