You might want to include some of the commentary as well.

The Starbucks and Turner Broadcasting I was told by the sysadmin, but it
was nothing really official.  Cisco runs their entire printserver network
and much of their NFS on linux.  IRS uses it for internal webservers.  I'm
not sure what the DOD was using it for, but the Army had the coolest
librettos ... I can get urls for that I one I think.  

I thought of 2 more... 

CERN.. runs on linux.
Los Alamos Labs in New Mexico -- huge linux clusters.

There might be a more formal listing floating around.. I'll see if I can
grab a copy.
