Oh, I don't know about that. We investigated Koha and Evergreen for a year
and recently decided to go with community Koha using ByWater Solutions as a
vendor rather than LibLime largely because of LibLime's position within (or
rather, without) the community. That, and the fact its product has
basically become a proprietary system with all the weaknesses and pitfalls
of such systems. While investigating, we did visit a couple of LibLime
clients who are jumping ship as soon as they are legally able, for many of
the same reasons we eschewed it from the git-go.

So, I think it has, in fact, made a difference. People who care do pay
