Linux Journal: PowerWindows for Linux [Review]

PowerWindows is an integrated suite of small-to-medium-sized business applications. According to this review, there are some installation problems, but the overall package is "a solid offering and a welcome addition" to Linux.

"...As mentioned, I had a little trouble with the demo install on my older Mandrake distribution. It would have been nice if AppGen had included instructions or had enhanced the autoag script to fall back to text-based operation if the Java runtime failed. In addition, I'd like to see the documentation focus a little more on the Linux/UNIX side of things, or give equal coverage, at least. Those complaints aside, AppGen PowerWindows looks to be a solid offering and a welcome addition to the Linux application base. If you're looking for a Linux-based business solution or are interested in exploring opportunities in the VAR channel, it may pay to give PowerWindows a look. "
