 [image of the Head of a GNU]

From: Jerome Haguet

A French CAD/CAM company is leveraging the power of GNU tools to build software for mechanical, nuclear, and bridge engineers. An eight-developer team is responsible for 15 applications that contain a total of 2.5 million lines of code. These applications are used in 25 different countries.

All of these developers use EMACS, CVS, and GNATS. They use Apache and Perl as an Intranet solution, as well. Other GNU tools, such as GCC and gdb, are used from time to time.
