    Openbravo IMO has the best futuristic technology blended in it.

    ...most certainly when it comes to usability and ease of deployment. I suspect both of these are rooted in the fact that Openbravo is 100% web based, which strongly affects both aspects.

    Stability is less obvious to assess, but Openbravo also has the advantage of a model-driven architecture, and use of Java, the mainstream business language that everyone knows and that has type checking, which means the compiler catches a large class of errors that only show up at runtime for dynamic languages like Python. Very significant for complex business apps like ERP.

    Also relevant re: Java is the available best in class Java frameworks that Openbravo leverages, such as Hibernate, Weld, Activiti BPM, etc.--not to mention the embedded world class reporting through Jaspersoft. The Java stack is truly enterprise grade, again very important for a mission critical business application like ERP.
