Cross-platform file syncing over LAN [duplicate]

I would like to be able to sync files across my computers (Ubuntu, Windows XP and Windows 7). Ideally, it would be easy enough for my family to use. Real syncing (not just a shared folder), is important so that my brother can access files on his laptop wherever he goes.

As described in this answer, the latest experimental build of Dropbox allows LAN syncing to preserve some bandwidth.

if its within a lan, why not set up a smb folder on one of the systems, and use that? If you really need to, you can probably use various native tools to keep a local copy, but that's what sounds simplest to me.
