Advantages
Under Usermin a user can change their own password
You can create, delete, and modify users by batch file although you will still need to edit the shared folders and convert unix to Samba users

Disadvantages
Windows and Shares remembers your login information. So you are unable to switch users easily or even logout. The only way I've found to disconnect is by command prompt: net use * /del /yes to delete all active/saved shares.
There isn't any easy way to browse files in a web interface. At least not one that restricts the user to just their own folder. Would need to program custom module in java or something.
