Punching the Clock with GNU/Linux
D.C. Parris writes "Despite Novell's much-touted poll showing Adobe Photoshop to be the Most-requested application, accounting remains the weak spot for business users wanting to deploy GNU/Linux. Imagine your small business outsources payroll to one of the giants of the outsource payroll industry. Now imagine your timeclock plugs into your computer and a small utility program lets you transmit your timecard data directly to your vendor's web-based payroll system. Now imagine that you want to migrate to GNU/Linux. Don Parris helps you navigate the sometimes tricky terrain of outsourced payroll in the GNU/Linux world."
