We don't modify production (except in an emergency) except through svn.
We do go on and do an update on one of the servers, and currently (as we
are on windows), it propagates the changes to another server. I really
don't want to have to replicate the changes manually, especially if we
are going to add more servers to the farm.

Now so far, most things that I see for linux are as good as the
microsoft product /or better. DFS has it's weaknesses, but it's just
awesome when you have small updates that need to be propagated. I can't
believe that linux doesn't have anything similar.
