Now, none of that tells us "how many large contributors would be willing
to install closed-source software that they're not involved in developing
on their servers", but I should think that the number may be fairly large.

Ha, I see your point. Although by "large contributors" I was thinking of those awesome souls to run our heavy-duty relays and not corporations. A quick run-through of our top 50 contributors shows 47 Linux boxes and 3 FreeBSD boxes. I guess I'm just biased into thinking it's the open-software nuts who most support the cause ;-)
