definitely not the academic scientific departments.

physics, math, chemistry and all the engineering departments are fully
behind linux.  in particular, the sparcs in physics are just waiting to
die and be replaced by x86 running linux.  the office administrators use
windows, but that's about it.

last i looked, anthropology seemed windows based, but i heard a rumor
about year ago that this was beginning to change.
