What increasing number of academics? What library technologists?  Where are
the hard numbers?
We are moving to a new library system for the entire State University of New
York system.  It is the Aleph 500 from Ex Libris.  It will be running on a
Solaris platform using Unix (not) Linux).  The clients used by staff are all
Windows based.  Where are the hard numbers to support the statement about
libraries moving to open platforms?
