Try to avoid operating system "politics".

The question in this case was about ORGANIZATIONAL use, not personal 
use. It is for that very reason that I (and experienced "techie" who 
would have no problems running GnuCash under a 'nxi) did NOT consider 
that in my evaluation presented to our organization. Willingness to 
learn a new operating system should not be among the qualifications for 
running for the office of treasurer of the organization. In my case, I 
won't be treasurer forever (and in fact, because of our bylaws, will 
soon have to leave the board for at least one term).
