just me trying to be helpful to someone off list. My assumption (you 
know what happens... poor uma thurmond) was just that... ;) I was always 
under the impression, though that the effort to port over to redmond 
land would be pretty massive and pretty unlikely.

Personally, as far as headaches go, payroll would be better. It probably 
takes up more of my time and brainpower than anything else I do. But, 
inventory control is probably more important from a business management 
pov, if you have inventory that is. For me, there is no way I could do 
inventory control in gnucash simply because my books are at the office 
and my inventory is at the store... and my inventory (which comprises 
liquor, beer and wine) is pretty fluid (pun intended) and could never be 
handled by an accouting package. others will differ.
