I remember that some years ago, I went into my country's official page to obtain the tools to fill in my taxes. I was greatly displeased to see that everything was Windows-based. Not even Mac users had an alternative. That day, I wrote a suggestion concerning multi-platform solutions, but I did not think they were going to do anything about it.
This year, the government started pushing for electronic invoices. Thus, I went into the corresponding page to learn about the tools... My first thought was "Windows might be a must."
However, I could not believe my eyes: they had the software for Windows, Mac, and Linux!
Well, Linux 64-bit only, and just Debian-based, but hey, that was great still!
My desktop and main computer is a 32 bit box, so it would not be useful. That did not worry much because I own a Linux laptop that is 64 bits.
Thus, I downloaded the software and tried it...
Success! I could effectively create, sign and send my electronic invoices!
I still don't know how this will work in terms of accounting, but I am glad free software users were not completely left behind this time.
The world is changing!
