The back end will be very specific to MS SQL server. As for the front end - that was my point - as soon as you use MS products, your user client becomes very specific as well. It's almost impossible to do development avoiding all .net components. Adding cross-platform compatibility will add to development costs and the time to market.

We were all whinging about a) cost and b) development time, weren't we?

I am not trying to be a Capita apologist. But they will only do what you want if there's something in it for them. I think they're embattled, blinkers on, and don't care about compatibility right now.
