      First, thank you for the tip.

      Saw that /. item too. SAP doesn't look that enticing to me. It looks like an ailing product that wanted some opensource fairy dust sprinkled on it. I read a fair amount of the comments and looked around at the docs on the site.

      • The code is a weird blend of pascal and C++. It uses a proprietary "transpiler" to compile the pascal into C. Jesus.
      • It supports Perl through ODBC. Ick.
      • Despite marketing hype, many users reported a fairly negative experience on install.
