No, it's surely not. It's most certainly a task which the
app should do. OS can't help here.
Example: You have the file on a Dropbox (http://www.getdropbox.com/
shared directory. Now you want to edit it on system A (a Linux box). A
little later, while system A still has the file open, user from system B (using
Windows) wants to open the file.
The OS can't do anything about it. The app should take of that (the way
VIM does it - it's simply superb! It tells the user which system has a file
open and if it's the same system, tells the user if the process is still
running. That's a FTW!).
