LSC Grantee Technology Data


LSC has released this year's stats on what technology everyone is using. It has been split up into three sections, legal aid specific technology like A2J Author and HotDocs, more general software like browsers and word processors, and how the computers are networked, this includes things like how files are shared on the network and remote access.

Not having to worry about supporting any other version of Windows not to mention Mac or Linux makes it a lot easier to design and text applications.
