If you are using OpenACS in a production environment, I would be greatly indebted if you could post one or two lines describing your instance (e.g. linux distro, openacs/.lrn version, # of users). Thank you in advance.

One of the challenges for obtaining external funding and support for OpenACS is that we don't have accurate who is using OpenACS.

Hi,

]project-open[ had a total of 4500 installations from
~1200 different organizations (IP addresses) in the
last 12 month. We believe that ~100 companies are using
]project-open[ as a production system, according to
repeating hits to our web site. However, we don't know
most of these 100 companies.

Most of these ~100 systems look like this:

OpenACS 5.1.5, ]project-open[ 3.0.0.7
PostgreSQL 7.4.3
MS-Windows & CygWin
5-500 Users

Here are only a few customers that gave us explicit permission to publish their names (in no particular order):

http://www.dixon.es/
OACS 5.1.5, ]project-translation[ 3.0
PostgreSQL 7.4.8
SuSE Linux

http://www.sls-international.com/
OACS 5.1.5, ]projec-translation[ 3.1
PostgreSQL 7.4.8
SuSE Linux

http://www.opus5.net/
OACS 5.1.5, ]project-consulting[ 3.1
PostgreSQL 7.4.8
SuSE Linux

http://www.leinhaeuser.de/
OACS 5.1.5, ]project-translation[ 3.1
PostgreSQL 8.0.x
SuSE Linux

http://www.scriptservices.ca/
OACS 5.1.5, ]project-consulting[ 3.1
PostgreSQL 7.4.3
MS-Windows

And this is ourselves:

http://projop.dnsalias.com/
OACS 5.1.5, ]project-consulting[ 3.1
PostgreSQL 7.4.8
SuSE Linux

Btw., what happened to text formatting in the forum?
I had to set this text as <pre> in order to get
_some_ type of formatting...

Bests,
Frank
