Merced County Office of Education successfully made the transition to Version L in March, 2014.  After much careful planning by MCOE staff, the COE is now operating a Linux system as their QSS application server with PostgreSQL as the choice of database.

Corona-Norco USD was the first QSS customer to make the transition from Version H to Version L.  As of Jan 1, 2014, Corona-Norco's HP-3000 system was replaced by a Linux application server accessing data from MS SQL databases.
