Not personally (yet) but for a while I've been looking at comments in 
the Nekochan forums, thinking about using it on one of my SGIs. 
Consensus is that it's rather slow.  Not so slow that it's awful on an 
Indy (apart maybe from booting), but noticeably slower than people 
expect on faster machines.  The ACARD ones seem to be faster.  Perhaps 
it won't matter for older machines.
