Hi Con/All,

Whilst my reply is too late to assist in this issue.. 

I would like to stick up the hand of LinMagAu to offer a space
to do a survey /fact finding mission with a OS/FOSS IT Prof slant if required.

We have had a fairly good response to the current user/groups type survey
we are running now..and I hope to have some interesting stats for everyone
come next issue.. 

The biggest "hurdle" with such info gathering :) is reaching the
people who can give good input to such endeavours..

The back end is easy to setup and the stats can be presented in a nice
webbie thing, (I am sure there are folks out there that could munge them
into something even better if required).. however 
point being.. LinMagAu is a fairly well known space now, and is available
to all and any orgs that want to run fact finding projects..
