Open Source Financial System for Higher Ed

Along the lines of Linux-like movements, I just recently heard about the Kuali Project, which is an attempt to replace PeopleSoft, Oracle or whatever a school uses for it's financial system.

While Sakai ruffled a few feathers and is getting some attention from commercial vendors, I would imagine that Kuali will recieve a lot more resistance. The financial stakes are much higher for commercial financial systems as the revenue is significantly more than a LMS license.
