There are many different sparc processors, that's what I mean.  NFS
just isn't all that fast on my old hyperSPARC even though it is a
relatively fast one, for its time.

I have extensive experience with both, and believe me coda is quite
slow by comparison.  NFS on linux doesn't have the very well
multithreaded performance of the Solaris or HPUX implementations on
SMP systems, but hey, it costs less!  For modest setups, is works
great, and with the same performance as solaris on single cpu
systems, ie., limited more by media speed or processor speed than
code execution speed.
