 Hello, coda hackers!

 My personal opinion:

 For me, coda is robust. It is working fine for me on a production

 Greater it will be good, but I have no problem on its actual limitations.

 I do not use Win2k, can't give opinion.

 This could be interesting to use it on a exposed environment, but only as
an option -it could work slower-.

 Anyway, I think that there is only one problem with coda: the
documentation. It is somewhat hard to follow it, because it has a strange
organization for me.

 This does not do less of the "great thing": coda is a great filesystem,
that give to us practical solutions for practical problems. Thanks, coda
developers! Excelent work! I want to thank also to Jan Harkes for his
help. Without it, it would be impossible for me to use it.
