I know this is "killing the cat" but did you get everything working?
Know all about choices! MC and PC. There was a time when MS was the way to go... many more software options, from other companies and for me, it was a time when my employee (US Gov/USMC) selected DOS then Windows as their drug of choice. I know the contradiction, clearly, while in Albany designing a new Supply/Maintenance/Accounting System (M3S). The whole thing crashed around everyone's ears because the system was too complex for a DBase and or systems written in "Fortran, Pascal, etc. So, the Corps in its wonderful wisdom bought an AMDAL Virtual Memory Mainframe (Hybrid UNIX OS jsut like or close to MAC today and Vista is trying to go...). Guess what? Your same problem today! Interface with all the Corps' DOS/Windows PC they had purchased was an initiative killer.
With congress and OMB looking over our shoulder, we pulled Atlass and LMIS out from our dark places as the stars and bars career saver. Sad to think, right now, in some boxes, in some warehouse, there is one system which would not only replace four current systems but you know about the diversity of the Corps Mission... Land, Sea, Air, etc. This systems in the private sector could change the world.
We never had a test run fail, only the OS system locking down because we had shoved the square peg of a DBase structure in a round whole of Virtual environment. Today, (if they haven't throw everything away) it would be an easy task to put it together with off the shelf operation systems.
If I can help, let me know. I just find the coincidence to funny to resist comment.
