Don't get me started :-/

We ended up installing a Windows Terminal Server to provide Renaissance
Learning products.

I've had some communication with codeweavers recently and they were
ready to start porting it to their product but there was not enough
interest to make it worth their while. Also Renlearn is in the process
of moving all products to their Renaissance Place software model.
Chances are the old products will be shelved over the next few years.

Honestly, building an OSS interface and DB back end for what I'd like to
"Everyone Reads!" is very doable. It's the test bank that is the real
"got ya".

It would take quite an initiative to get enough volunteers to build up a
test bank to make such an undertaking worthwhile. 

So there it is, my semi annual AR gripe session.
