Dear all,

we are using Easybuild at the Crick and for us it is working well. We got the 
flexibility we need, it is all compiled from source and if you want to use a 
different compiler, just use a different tool chain. This and the flexibility 
of lmod are really good. This also means we can maintain a central software 
stack without too many issues. 
The only time we are using anaconda is when there are python software is 
involved and it is too difficult for us to build. 

My two pennies from Little Britain!
