Ah. My lack of exposure to such things is showing.

This is just possibly an Australianism, but I don't think so. It means
"In my opinion" or "On my account", rather like "For min skyld". (Danish
is as close to Swedish as I can manage. :-)

Same here. There's just not a lot of merit in sending me something that
_only_ M$ can read. I don't possess, or have experience with, such
products. I can interwork to the extent that tools on either side are
compatible. If the work must be done on M$, then there are enough who
can do that, I expect.

My employers have been more than pleased with what FOSS tools have been
able to add to their bottom line. Performance is my protection. ;-)
