Hmmm...Any package that requires VARs and consultants to deploy is too
high end for my purposes. Since the subject came up I decided to do a
little more research.

I googled on "linux" "accounting" and after skipping all the process
accounting stuff in the kernel, found 'SQL-Ledger'. It is GPL and looks
like it can handle all I'd be throwing at it for a while. They know how
to get my interest: "SQL-Ledger is written in Perl, developed on
FreeBSD, Linux with Netscape, Links, Lynx, Explorer, Galeon, Konqueror,
Voyager (QNX), Apache for the display, and PostgreSQL, or Oracle to
store accounting data." <http://www.sql-ledger.com>

Cool, now all I need to know is how complete Pro/E support for linux is,
if that passes muster then I can be completely MS free!
