At the very end of that article, I found this statement:

"Resolver One is Windows only"

This sounds like a major drawback to me. It might be an acceptable "early 
project priority" if the app is only targeting the desktop, but this system 
additionally claims to be a "web-accessible spreadsheet". If this is 
supposed to run on a server, it means that it will always suffer from the 
"headless click-here-to-continue" problem.

It might not be too hard to port the app to Mono, but the rather explicit 
claim above doesn't make me feel very comfortable about that upgrade path...
