sometimes tricky

Sometimes things can be tricky if a business uses MS Access and all manner of VBA scripts. No direct migration path to Linux. SQL Server systems with stored procedured pose another problem, not to mention most real .NET apps. If they had used PHP or Java migration would be much simpler.

I wish migration was simpler, but some folks have so much MS software that only a partial migration is possible.
