I am looking for an up-to-date listing of all companies and schools that are using or testing open source on the desktop (complete displacement of Microsoft). I am already aware of the few examples you provided but a more comprehensive list would be helpful. Do you know where I might find such a listing?
To keep up to date on the schools project and thus on the schools involved, you can subscribe to the firstname.lastname@example.org mailing list. I think that's the most direct way to get the information you need. There's a flyer here on the project.
Editor's Note: For more case studies on migrating to Linux, take a look at our Wrong Choice series.
