Yes, I both used and developed the 6.1.0 Coda client in VMWare Linux 
(Debian) and Windows XP VM's for over a year.

I had problems with the client disconnecting and reconnecting seemingly 
at random, even when connected through ethernet in the same building as 
the Coda servers.  So if I wanted to be strongly connected before I ran 
an operation, I often did a "cfs cs" first.  I can attest that the Coda 
client works in both of those operating systems though, so if you have 
any questions, feel free to ask.
