Coda is at least mature enough for the MIT university network and
the stock Linux kernel, if that means anything. Personally, I would
recommend 'unison' as a way to avoid filesystem sharing altogether.
(Unison requires a mirrored copy of the shared data on every client, and
just keeps them all in sync).
Also, AFS is an improved derivative of Coda which I think is still in
a more experimental stage, but may be worth a try.
