Sure ... after a company took it and changed it from a PhD thesis into
a commerical product.  However, we don't use Coda.  If someone took the
time to change the current crop of capability-base OS's into systems
people used for real work, I'd take a look at them (it doesn't have to
be a commerical product, but the idea is the same: there's a big
difference between "PhD thesis software" and "usable software").
