This may be an impossible question, and I don't mean to be a mean
taskmaster, but what kind of timeframe are we looking at for a 3.x release?
Our office is a mongrelmix of Linux, W2k, and NT and while we are definitely
not going to go to an XP environment, we would like to increase linux usage
on the backend. Some of the connectivity to W2k that you talk about here
would go a long way to that.
