Another small victory for free software

I'm working at home today and was trying to import a JET database made for MS Access, which I don't have at home (because I use the Ubuntu GNU/Linux system). OpenOffice, which is the free software version of MS Office, isn't able to manipulate these databases. But a quick google search turned up the mdb-tools software, which I downloaded and, within minutes, was able to use to export the necessary data into a readable and analyzable format.
