Here at the Arizona State University West Library we are halfway through our
implementation project for a 100% Windows to Linux conversion for both
public workstations and servers. I am very pleased at how the project has
been progressing. You can look over our project plan at

> Dear All,
> Our System Administrator here reported that Indiana University recently
modified one of its student computer labs (not the library) to use the Linux
desktops and it seeems quite "successful enough that IU is considering using
it as a pattern for other student lab situations." He's been in touch with
the IU tech folks to see if this is also feasible for our library (is there
any IU-Library folks here? Could you shed any more info?)
> I know that Meadville public library is using linux for their public PCs
(http://meadvillelibrary.org/os/). Are there any other libraries out there
(especially academic ones) that also use linux for (some or all) public PCs?
If you could share the story on the details (HW, SW, network, printing
issues if you do the no-free printing solution, management and maintenance,
etc.) that would be very helpful. I'll sumarize the responses.
> Thanks in advance.
