Well, if the definition of "reporting tool" is "impossible to package
for automated installations, and impossible to use unless all your users
are administrators on their machines", no it's not ;-)

But seriously. Crystal comes in two flavours, I think? One client based
(that sucks beyond recognition, and can be compared to access) and one
server based (that I don't know the suckage factor of, but that I guess
you're referring to).

If it was an actual scientific survey, we'd need to clearly specify if
we were talking about server or client or hybrid products. In this case,
I really don't think it matters that much :-)
