Josh,

Just my two cents.

First, there actually WAS a FileMaker work-alike, called Rekall.  The two
guys who produced it tried to market it but it never took off.  There is
still an Open Source version (http://www.rekallrevealed.org), but it's not
actively developed.  I did a Linux Journal article on this a while back.
Maybe if there's enough interest, this project could be revived?

Next - do you think PostBooks could be a 'killer app', or are you looking
for a database frontend?

Cheers,
-J
