Not that switching to Linux didn't have it's benefits for them but Paradox is one of the worst database environments I've ever worked in. It's not so much Windows issues as the way Paradox is set up. Lock files are created when someone opens up a specific Paradox DB. If the Borland Database Engine's properties are set correctly to share the DB it runs like a champ (still not a big fan, but it can be made to run properly). Oh well, sounds like they got it sorted out.
