[Koha] Koha vs Liblime Koha

Hi, Jesse!

It's my impression that the LibLime version of "Koha" isn't really an open
source product, since LibLime doesn't release their code at all--it's more
like a proprietary product.  So asking us on this list about LibLime's
"Koha," here where we talk about the fully open source & community
supported Koha, is sort of like asking us about Innovative Milennium or any
other proprietary ILS--you'll probably get a lot of shoulder-shrugging!  I
would guess that if you choose LibLime's "Koha" you'd have all the same
problems and issues as if you chose any other proprietary system.

I'm sorry that I don't know a good place to find out about LibLime's
"Koha"--we have been completely happy with our choice of the fully open
source and community supported Koha, and never want to go back to
proprietary systems!

Good luck!
