Thanks for your cheering!

To answer your question:

- I don't know about IfThisThenThat, and if is the 
one, I'm not sure I understand exactly what it does... Can you give us 
more insight / info / use cases on this?

- evQueue and its management interface are pure Free Software as we like 
it :)

- although evQueue was designed mainly for server stuff, there is 
nothing preventing you from running it on your local machine;

- the evQueue engine is C++ so it can run on basically any computer (and 
it is packaged for debian);

- the monitoring/management interface does allow you precisely to 
automate jobs, those jobs can be any executable with any parameters. And 
the sequencing of those jobs can indeed be done using a GUI;

- that interface is web-based (PHP) so you would have to have a local 
web server though. Maybe we'll see more interfaces for desktop/mobile in 
the future using evQueue in the background :)

We are planning to add a section on the website with use cases.
Maybe if you'd like to describe us a common workflow you can have in 
IfThenThanThat, I could work on having it using evQueue, and present it 
in the use cases.

Thanks again,
