More SBA in the news (CNET)

Here is another review of Small Business Accounting 2006 done by CNET. I think the editor has some great words for SBA, but I'm a little confused by the rating (6.7 Good of 10) given the details in the review. The only big negative for him is that if your company is using Corel or StarOffice instead of Microsoft Office, then SBA is a "poor" choice for you.
"Bean counters, beware: Redmond's in town. Microsoft Office Small Business Accounting 2006 is ready to duke it out with Intuit QuickBooks in the hotly competitive business bookkeeping market."

"The good: Competitive price; solid set of small-business accounting tools; easy-to-learn interface; integrates smoothly with the Microsoft Office 2003 suite.

The bad: The tight links with Microsoft Office 2003 make it a poor choice for users of other productivity suites.

The bottom line: Microsoft Office Small Business Accounting 2006 is an affordable, well-designed bookkeeper that's a solid choice for users of Microsoft Office."

Seems to me like this deserved a score in the 7.5 to 8.5 range according to the review details and how CNET rates products.
