Iv'e been using paradox8 since it came out in the corel suite.  I have a fairly complex set of tables, forms, reports, queries, and scripts.  There is a lot of automation of document production via wordpefect, client and expense accounting, billing, time tracking, and file annotation.  There are some convoluted datamodels, alot of referential integrity and plenty of code attached to various objects and methods.  Everything is heavily integrated.  All of this amounts to a full featured Law office client file suite (I'm a lawyer, and I really do not like the offerings made to the legal community).  I hve decided abandon Mr. Gates and am transitioning to Linux.  I know there is no (and likely will not be) a paradox for linux.  So I'm hoping there is another suite of some sort out there which I can use to do the same tasks.  I even have small hope that perhaps there is some conversion software somewhere that will accommodate the scripts, forms, etc...

I am currently running the thing via virtualbox, which works well enough for the time being, but I do not prefer it as a long term option.

I have looked at the LibreOffice suite and it does not seem to support all of the data types, let alone cenversions.. I also had a look at kexi but it too looks like it may  be too simple to perfome the same operations. even if I tried to rebuild the whole thing from scratch.

So, I will welcome any suggestions as to a database which would at least allow a recreation of the suite more or less resulting in the same functionality, let alone some direct conversion.
