How many firms are *really* using tinyerp/openerp in India? 
Claims of extensive deployment/usage should be validated (e.g. on 
openerp web site or the consultant's web site).

On a side note, I have not had much success getting openerp to work on 
Ubuntu 8.04 and Centos 5.2.  I have followed the instructions for 
installing from the source (ensuring required libs etc.).

The "server" python script bombs with error messages (plan to follow up 
on them on the openerp mailing list).
