We haven't noticed any performance hit either on MkLinux or on FreeBSD.

Actually, what I do is keep my originals on my Mac. I work on them, syntax
check them, test bits, then I save a COPY to the FTP server. That way, my
interim saves are very fast (and local), the one on the FTP server is the
"working" version (or at least ready to test), I can do a lot of interim
saves (I'm paranoid, what can I say :-), and I get a free backup in the
bargain. One working copy on the Unix server and a backup on the Mac.

I keep _all_ of my source code on my Mac; I like BBEdit's Find and File
group capabilities.
