I have to take it down and run Windows to use Quicken and TurboTax that are not available on Linux),

This is a very important point. As an accountant I can tell you that most small and medium sized businesses in my experience use Windows to run their accounting software and most accounting firms that I am aware of are networked through Windows and use Windows to run their tax packages and auditing programs. Additionally most of the good business software is Windows driven. From a auditing standpoint I think a company would be assuming an undefendable risk to use a system that has no ligimate business backing it up. Based on that aloneI just don't see getting rid of Mr. Softie that easily and think it's still a good investment.
