I think you've found the right list to ask this question, and indeed
further to that, I'd be happy to meet up with you and perhaps have a
discussion and share my knowledge and experiences of FLOSS within
industry in Ireland and otherwise with you.
What you ask is a tremendously broad question though - could you frame
the context of what you actually want to know, please? I'm sure people
would be very happy to also share their experiences with you, but would
appreciate knowing whether you are interested in SMEs, a particular
business sector, large industry, FLOSS interoperating with commercial
systems, FLOSS only deployments, commercially supported FLOSS packages,
or something else entirely. Are you interested in the technical merit,
or the financial savings, or the hidden costs, or the availability of
support, or all of the above?
As you can see, if you can clarify what you would like to know, perhaps
we can provide some more focussed and useful answers.
