Open Source Financial Software

| 2 Comments | No TrackBacks

Continuing the the 'Linux on the Desktop' discussion, I often heard people ask about a heavy duty, industry standard financial software. Frankly, I use GnuCash. Granted it's not really designed for a large business (ie accounting firm), but it suits me just fine. In fact, the package has made reliance upon Quicken a distant memory.

*Aside* - GnuCash has finally released a beta product based on Gtk2 libs, now that's newsworthy ;)

Now there is talk about another commercial product, TurboCash opening their source code. While I think it's great, I'm not sure if it's exactly newsworthy.

There are always firms who secretly desire to get access to more open source developers, so announcements like these garners the attention that they need.

Eventually, someone will probably reverse engineer their product anyway.
