I downloaded the Windows version last night and love it. With Linux and Open Office, I am almost ready to kiss Microsoft goodbye. Now, if only there were a good Linux replacement for Quickbooks (which is in the pay of the evil empire, I think).

Re: Openoffice 2.0 Release Candidate 1 Now Available
I know what you mean. We're running QuickBooks 2000 Pro under Win4Lin, and that's the only app for us that there is no Linux equivalent. There are many Linux book keeping programs, but we found most to be unsatisfactory in business, and only one or two offer payroll services. What I wouldn't give if someone were to make a QuickBooks clone for Linux using, or at least able to accommodate, the .QBW file extension.

QB 2000 Pro is more than adequate for our needs, and they shouldn't try to force us to upgrade unless we need or want to.
Sorry... I wasn't trying to hijack the thread...
