I use it here happily.

My only complaint is that it doesn't have any kind of authentication system. I
run it on my home server, and frequently want to connect to it remotely from my
laptop. Have to use an ssh tunnel to do that, unless I wanted to have a public
open server.

Leafnode isn't really intended for this use, so my complaint shouldn't be taken
very seriously.
