Moneydance Personal Finance Manager
The Moneydance manual is small and concise (about 70 pages). It very clearly walks through the install process for all platforms (Linux/UNIX, Windows, MacOS), and numerous screenshots show initial account setup, importing of QIF data, on-line banking features and more. It even spends a bit of time explaining accounting terminology and some basics, in case you don't happen to be familiar with them. Screenshots are a nice balance of shots from both Windows and Macintosh versions. The Linux screens are nearly identical to the Windows' ones, aside from window decorations, so you should have no problem there. The Moneydance mail list is monitored by the developers, and I got a quick response to my questions on using the Python plugin.
All in all, if Quicken is what has been keeping you locked into that other OS, I think you may be able to reclaim a disk partition if you switch over to Moneydance. AppGen is also getting ready to release MyBooks for Linux, a product competitive with QuickBooks, should you need something for a small business--what I'm waiting for.

With all the industry talk about the benefits of Linux on Power and all the performance advantages offered by its open architecture, you may be considering a move in that direction. If you are thinking about analytics, big data and cloud computing, you would be right to evaluate Power. The idea of using commodity x86 hardware and replacing it every three years is an outdated cost model. It doesn’t consider the total cost of ownership, and it doesn’t consider the advantage of real processing power, high-availability and multithreading like a demon.
This ebook takes a look at some of the practical applications of the Linux on Power platform and ways you might bring all the performance power of this open architecture to bear for your organization. There are no smoke and mirrors here—just hard, cold, empirical evidence provided by independent sources. I also consider some innovative ways Linux on Power will be used in the future.Get the Guide
