Problem is that we need it to run Aeries, so we'd need to either a) find
a way to run msaccess under X (wine xoveroffice, etc) or find a database
that can run msaccess "code" (and I use the term very loosely). From
what I've seen so far neither scenario is likely anytime soon. Switching
to a different SIS is, unfortunately, not possible. One thing about
aeries - it's pretty inexpensive as such things go. I just wish they'd
used a different "tool" to build it.
