NFS is getting so rare that some systems aren't even organized to accommodate "mount -o ro /usr" anymore.

NFS is widely used in HPC to mount user home directories on compute nodes.

I use NFS a decent amount, just not for anything like this, because even on a link with e.g. 5ms latency you end up with issues all over the place.

It seems like solving a problem that could be fixed more easily by just rsyncing or cloning the codebase. Storage is cheap.
