I have been entrusted with the task of setting up the computers for a small electronics repair shop with less than ten employees.

Right now there are a few Windows computers doing various tasks, all connected with an unprotected wireless network and the c-drive shared, full access  Roll Eyes Accounting is done using an old version of Peachtree. The work order generator is an old form made with Front Page 98 extensions, which no longer works.

After I implement some security, the plan is to just ditch the current software and create a new setup. I would like to use a LAMP server and a web interface for work orders, inventory, accounting and payroll.

Anyone with experience have suggestions?

can't help with the business web-based software but have you considered a thin client network ( http://www.ltsp.org )? It would mean the shop would never have to upgrade their boxes and means only one server setup for you....

nightflier, future releases of SugarCRM are going to be licensed under GPLv3, so that may interest you too Smiley

Found another one with interesting features:

 - 100% open source
 - few dependencies
 - Multiplatform
 - GTK and web based interfaces
 - Postgresql backend
 - Modules from third party available to add functionality
 - International support
 - OScommerce and Joomla supported

Enough, I look like a salesman  Smiley
