I am doing some research here at my work (TechSmith, makers of Camtasia Studio and SnagIt) and I am looking for Educational institutes that use Ubuntu or even SUSE. I am also looking for large businesses that use either of those as well. Mainly I am trying to get an idea of the market share of Linux desktops in both the Educational and the business sectors. Any links or personal experience would be greatly appreciated! Thanks!

Good ideal! In fact, i have being done the similar work as you mentioned for several months. You can browse my website: http://www.bioinfoserv.org/en.

At present, more information is mainly published in Simple Chinese and I am trying it in english.

You might want to try emailing the edubuntu-users mailing list (check on http://lists.ubuntu.com ) as there are quite a few people using Edubuntu/Ubuntu/Kubuntu/Xubuntu in educational settings there. Perhaps emailing Richard Weideman who is Canonical's Education Programme Director would get you some info as well. PM if you need can't find his email on Launchpad.
