Anyone have experience with the Linux version of Appletalk (netatalk)? How

implementation? Is it noticeably faster/slower?

I think the main thing is, as others have pointed out, it's like NFS or any similar protocol.
Performance is "dependent" on many things, not the least of which are the specific CPU that is hosting, and the one which is receiving.

Netatalk has worked well for years (10+? maybe).
