I know of a couple of organizations that have switched to Mozilla in whole or at least give their employees the freedom to use Mozilla. In most cases (at least that I know of), they use the suite.

Still, before we collect names, how about making Mozilla more "large organization" friendly. I have received quite a few request of people who needed information on how to set up / deploy Mozilla at their school/company. Using Mozilla, that is not simple. In addition, what about things like patches? You cannot expect sysadmins that have Mozilla running on 1000 PCs (not exaggerating here) manually deploy the latest security patch on every one of these PCs. If there is a way to do a scripted batch install, *do* put information how that's done up on the shellblock info page on Mozilla.org.

So, while it's nice to know which organization uses Mozilla, why not make it easy to deploy / update first. Just my two cents.
