"Is Linux getting mainstream? Not if you base your
conclusion on the search results I just got at Freshmeat when I
entered "accounting" as my search term. I got geek soup:

business set, it's time I started looking around to locate all the
accounting tools I need in order to run my business."
"The first accounting package (in the mainstream sense of the
term) my search on Freshmeat turned up was the nineteenth package

site, where I found 22 other packages for download. Unfortunately,
most of those were for personal finances rather than business. Here
is a quick look at what I did find."
