apparently, this is true:
stumbled across a very weird page on the tally website that mentions a linux
release, although afaik they have no linux version - rather strange, does
anyone know about this .. :

*Will definitely try this - would make my life much nicer without having to
worry about another windows machine:) - although my past experience with
Wine has not been great - I used to run ie6 a lot for testing purposes, and
regularly saw Wine taking 100% CPU usage and required to be killed ..
hopefully Tally behaves better..
