Thumbs up NFS your thoughts

So far I was using SAMBA for file sharing between my BSD desktop and other Windows/Mac on my LAN. I was thinking of moving to NFS because of better performance and more in the spirit of Unix . But I've few concerns about NFS.

1. File sharing - How can I mount NFS on windows, I assume it can be done easily on OSX.

2. I have few windows machine on the LAN of which I don't control. I would like to share a directory with them but don't want them to have access to any other directory.

As I have no prior experience with NFS, I needed some suggestions. Thanks
