Federal government department for agri-business is adopting open source software. They wanted a platform independent, open source accounting system with french language support. They wanted to be able to integrate with their web shopping cart and non-profit membership system, which is also running on an open source platform. They have a mixed environment with a Linux server, some workstations on MS windows and some on Linux.
