What is it all about?

1. Accounting does only create cost and no single cent of value
contribution to anything
2. Accounting must book entries properly, meet the legal requirements
and provide basic reporting as accountants are used to have
3. If you need management control, use budgeting and controlling
4. If you let accountants decide on your business software and how you
manage your business, you will ruin your business in the longterm
5. The new accounting system in Odoo is for sure difficult for people
who have put much effort in reporting based on financial periods, but
the decision has been taken a long time ago and was heavily discussed in
the community.

Just my 5 cents...
