The forum posting you referred to requires membership of the forum. I am 
not a member of the forum, therefore I cannot see the posting.
The forum frontend (http://forums.runrev.com/) is available for any 
passerby to see, and it is a very quiet place... Hence the 'sadest Forum 
I've seen' comment.

Been there some time ago.

Open source is a non-issue for me (the back end is Java, I'm not sure 
'open source' really applies here).

Yup, seen that, and some really nifty apps out there.

Been there.

Yep, and they've recently introduced some additional vector stuff too.

I'm evaluating several development options, some of which track 
differently because the nature of some projects doesn't require full 
blown coding which is easily covered by other apps. Other projects do 
have that requirement, and I'm looking at least cost (both in software 
and development time) and then plough through with whatever options I 
have chosen.

Cheers,

Luis.
