Open Source Software Development Tool: Upgrade Progress

It is planned to upgrade the Programmable Software Development
Environment to include the capability of reading the paste-in text
files where the each paragraph is one very long line.  You may need to

the file has not been changed, was developed using the agree-upon
standard libraries, or has not been illegally copied.

BEGINNING THOUGHTS

May 21, 2013

As I am approaching my potential need to replace my Windows based machine, I am reviewing my selection of critical software.

One of these programs is QuickBooks.  I like this program; however as far as I know, it has no Linux version.  Furthermore, I do not know if it is upward compatible (works on a later Windows operating system).  I do have a very beat-up notebook computer which
has this program installed.  As soon as know the status of my broken machine, I will export my financial data into an EXCEL format and use OPEN OFFICE for this activity.  Open office has both a Windows and Linux version.   I have both versions and am quite happy with them.  I should have made this conversion a long time ago.

RULE 1:  Make sure that you are using strictly portable programs in all critical tasks.
