Did you find any spyware in it? Rumour of the decade has always been that the reason they want
businesses to download their software is so they can take a quick peek at your accounts every now
and again and see what you aren't telling them (like adjustments the week before the tax is due!)!
That's the reason an Accountant advised me to dump their original E-Record (on Win, which wasn't
that great anyway) and since I switched to Linux I've had the perfect excuse not to download any
ATO software (until now!).

Have not found any spyware, and it's pretty isolated inside win4lin.  Linux
version not yet installed as I was too slow to get it.
