I'm really curious as to where all of this negativity is coming from. In a 
previous job, I lobbied vehemently for replacing our existing kludgy and 
antiquated commercial ILS that had terrible customer support with something more 
flexible and suited to our needs. At the time, Koha was the one I saw with the 
most potential, and since the library I was in was not in control of the 
institution's IT department, I also lobbied for having it hosted offsite. 
LibLime was the clear choice for implementation and hosting at that point, and 
out of all of the various ILS vendors I spoke with, they were the most 
responsive and forthcoming. Due to many circumstances, I wasn't actually 
successful in convincing my library to switch vendors, but I never saw any 
hint of potential problems dealing with Liblime or Koha.
