What distros do you use at UCT? What department uses them, and if you use old versions, what versions? Can you tell us where it is used (desktops / servers / departmental servers), and how friendly your department will be to supporting LEG financially to mirror your distro (should we hit a disk-space-crunch).

Please add yourself to this page.
