Openbravo Is NOT Happening For a Client
I spent a good portion of today at a very small food distributor's head quarters. I've been working on an invoicing system for them for quite a while. But the more I've been working on it, the more I realize that I'll never be done. I told the owner today what I thought, and was going to set up Openbravo. I'd had my hopes up, but then saw the system specs. The server she's got "ain't gonna cut it."
On the other hand, I've got Openbravo and Openbravopos installed on a box at work. If we can replace our current proprietary app (that seems to be getting slower and buggier) then I'll probably bring it up after extensive trial runs. I think our current vendor is skipping the testing phase for new versions, so it will be nice to have an app that's tested pretty extensively on several platforms before new versions are released. I also think even the most expensive licensing scenario with Openbravo will be cheaper than what we're running now, to the tune of a couple or three thousand a year I think. That's a lot for small business.
What if I can get by with just the community edition? I wonder what's shaking over at OpenERP and Tryton (a fork)…
