SparkleShare and ownCloud tested.

SparkleShare works nicely with zim and shared notebooks between Linux
and Windows on own server. Uses git as background so it is quite a bit
of overhead data as zim is autosaving very often. SparkleShare checks in
any saved changes so there is a git commit for every autosave in zim. I
have 25% overhead in the checked out repositories.

ownCloud also shares between Linux and Windows, but gave me too many
conflict files for me to be happy. This may be a result of zim
autosaving too often.

Next up in the try-pipe is seafile, another open alternative. Claims to
be better than SparkleShare as it uses git algorithm, but not git
itself. Has client for Windows and Linux, but so far I am pulling source
and compiling so I have no experience yet.

I have been using DropBox for my least sensitive notebooks, and so far
DropBox has the best offered performance.
