Stata ado-files are completely portable across platforms. There are no
differences between the Windows, Linux, and Macintosh ado-files. You could
share them across the network and everything would work.
However, I would not recommend that you do this. Running Stata ado-files
across a network in this manner will be much slower compared to running them
while they reside on the local machine.
The best recommendation I can give for centralizing the update process would be
to write a script of some kind to handle this for you. All it would need to do
is copy the directories and their files to each workstation. Set it up as a
cronjob to run however often you like and you're done.
