Public Folders used for document collaboration.  The primary reason is replication.
It appears cumbersome at best.  Documents can't be changed and saved directly, etc.  Not to mentioned Exchange server load.

Would File Replication Services be better?
Is there a way during a transition to put aliases in Public Folders to make it relatively seamless for users to get to those shares w/out too much confusion.

you can look at something like DFS but public folders are probably fine for what you are doing
