So far, we have about 550 machines running Woody, of which just over 40 are servers. Most of the Woody boxes are used in our 21 teaching labs where our undergraduate students undertake their coursework. The remaining boxes are scattered around academics and system administrators desks.
The GNU compilers, XFree, Mozilla, Emacs, vi, apache, mutt, pine, mysql and postgresql are the most used software on the machines.
We chose Debian over other Linux distributions because of its administrator friendliness and general security awareness.
