" Should I Retire or Help SMBs Improve Their Capabilities?"

    I have found a business platform that is Linux-based and does not require Microsoft anywhere in the platform, yet it can interact seamlessly with Windows PCs or dumb terminals. It is a unique collage of best-in-class software and hardware, melded in what is currently termed an “appliance”.

    I have also found the perfect Business Intelligence solution to complement this platform. It is also “appliance”-oriented, meaning that you don’t require a large team to implement and maintain the solution.

    While I am "transitioning" to retirement, the urge to help SMBs (Small-Medium Businesses) achieve real capabilities at a fraction of their current cost is pulling me back from full retirement. I am considering offers from the two companies.

    Finally a question: Should I go into retirement and do my pet retirement project (build or should I accept the offers and work until I "get this out of my system"?

    Your comments would be appreciated.

    It seems clear from your summary that you have a passion for continuing to work with IT and small businesses. Craft a win-win approach that lets you do everything. Work doesn't need to be "all or nothing". Just an opinion.
