Multiuser desktop database apps such as Paradox, Access, FileMaker Pro, 
DBase, Clipper, FoxPro, Visual FoxPro, etc.  And... and this is the most 
important IMO of all... the thousands of internal custom business apps 
built using one of these desktop database development environments.

This one fix means that all the apps I've developed for my various clients 
in Visual FoxPro will now be portable to Linux.  Before this fix, I 
couldn't say that.
