Open Call: Financial Application Ponderance
I don't have a lot of time to work with Linux but I'm watching and waiting to see when I can get my home off of Windows.
As far as I can tell there is only one piece missing in the Linux world which may be out there, I just haven't seen it.
Reliable, Linux based personal financial applications; if there were a viable alternative to Quicken and MS Money, that was acceptable to major financial institutions, I think you would see a tremendous upsurge in the acceptance of Linux as a day to day computing platform for the average Joe.
Just a thought, don't get out your gun, get out your protractor and tell me where to go.
I'm almost there in the business world;
I have to use Remote Desktop, Linux has that, it's crude but serviceable
I need to open MS documents, not quite there but getting there
I can't get pcAnywhere web client to run in Konquerer, maybe I need a different installation. Try www.vordesigns.com/pca it's an activeX control so good luck.
The SonicWall GUI doesn't work right on Konquerer and FireFox so I'm stuck there.
Half of the VPN client I need to use have no alternative in the Linux world. Why is that since most of the majore VPN vendors run some form of proprietery POSIX kernel or another?
Anyway, your thoughts?
