We're a research lab, not a corporate environment, and we use Fedora
(and a few RHEL installs) for basically everything including:
- servers: web, email, NFS, samba, NIS, ...
- clusters: head, compute, and storage nodes
- laptops and desktops
- our "hyperwall" (a 4X4 monitor visualization system)
- data acquisition
which altogether adds up to a few hundred machines in a few buildings.
Also, the relatively new Fedora Extras system has been a real help since
it allows us to join the Fedora packagers to get somewhat obscure bits
of software included with the distro.
