Good point, being a Linux user myself.
I'll be more than happy helping out where I can. I was going to try flying solo on something for resscan cards,
SQL is do-able in Linux, but .NET definitly limits it to Windoze. There are a ton of C+ variants/flavours, and databases are also in abundance.
PHP,Perl and more, just to name a few ways of going about it. Almost everything for Linux is open source and freely distributable. But I'll be happy to help out on a Windoze distro too, as that's where my experience is anyway.
Anyway, once I get my card reader, I'll be in a better position to help out. But I'm in all the same.
