Came across this while doing a bit of catch-up reading...
...and whaddayaknow, only a bit over a year after that, when starting my current job, I also got to get acquainted with Pentaho. Mostly PDI, the ETL tool, but also a bit of Pentaho BA/"Mondrian", the reporting end. Paid-for version up until three weeks ago, but recently I'm testing the Community Edition on one of our test servers and soon on my own workstation.
So I guess the tables are turned: If I have any questions, I can turn to you, Mike (you old Chekist, you), since you must be an old hand at this stuff by now?
