Have you seen Appgen (www.appgen.com) -- quickbooks replacement for Mac, Linux
and Win32. Concurrently. I have been keeping my eye on it.

I agree. It's amazing what can bring a smile and a ton of appreciation from a
small (or even mid-size) business owner. Personally I have been putting a
lot of energy and effort into XWT (www.xwt.org) -- machine independent, OS
agnostic, fast and zero, ZERO requirement for fast desktop machines or
specific web clients. I'm sick to death of web interfaces and I don't want
to push Linux where it just doesn't yet belong. At the same time, I don't
want to lock someone in to Windows and I don't want to pay big bucks for a Qt
development license. :-)
