Make OA Source Code Open


Randall Loftis

A lot of folks use Office Accounting with great success. As a software
developer, I personally view it as a superior product to Quickbooks.

I recommend that Microsoft release the code to the Open Source community.
This would assure continued support, desirable features could live on,
Microsoft Partners continue to benefit by providing solutions, and small
businesses that are not Intuit zombies have an alternative.

Plus Microsoft could still be a thorn in Intuit's side!

That is the only way MS could redeem after abandoning this product that I
began to like.




Great Idea. You may never see it though becaue the open source community
typically outshines commercial products because they have the novel idea to
give users what they want at a price they can afford. If it ever went open
source, the MS would want it back once it was fixed, and then they could
overcharge for it. Look at asterisk phone systems, completely open source,
as good or better than any commercial product, and you can't beat the price,
FREE (unless like me you have a conscience and make a donation).

I can't not find any product that will give ODBC connection to the database
easily, reliably, and affordably.
