I agree with “ActiveCounselling”.

I’m a software developer and have been for over 15 years. In the last 5 years or so I’ve turned into a huge Open Source fan (i.e. not a big Microsoft fan).

BUT

MS Access is a reasonably good product and it does a reasonably good job for hundreds of thousands (if not millions) of people.

I do agree that time based billing software has come along way recently (including open source and web based apps) and it may be time to review some alternatives.

I can’t suggest moving to another technology without any major benefit.

I guess the point of my post is to look very critically at the decisions you make and what benefits you gain from making those decisions. It’s not worth paying huge somes of money, or taking huge chunks of time for a small improvement.
