Gnucash is the best open source alternative to most of the commercial accounting apps out there. I have been using it for 2 years & except for some getting used to the new way of doing things, I feel that it can beat most of the accounting apps hands down...

I have been using Quicken for 20 years, but I have always been dissatisfied. Quicken is limited, and they never seem to make progress quickly enough. It seems like they are always working against the user. So I have been following Gnucash for many years, waiting for a time when it might be an acceptable alternative. Unfortunately, Gnucash is not even close to being mature software yet. The documentation is excellent. Very rare to see excellent documentation in a free-software project. However, the software itself (under Windows 8) does not work at all. The stable version 2.4.13 will not even open. I am sitting and looking at the start-up screen now on my computer, which has frozen at the splash screen. Version 2.5.5 (unstable) lives up to its name. Although it gets past the splash screen, it crashes when attempting to save a transaction into PostgreSQL. So, I will continue to monitor this project. Maybe in another 10 years...

I have been using GnuCash for more than five years. Through the forums, support is excellent and searches of the web generally provide me with what I need to resolve issues. My difficulties with the package are caused through not having a formal accounting background rather than GNUCash shortcomings. When I do (finally) get a strategy for resolving an issue, GNUCash does it elegantly and efficiently. The latest for me was after I entered payment of invoices through reconciling with my bank statement instead of through the Business section. The result was a balanced reconciliation with invoices showing as unpaid. It took me a while to get the terminology right in my searches but GNUCash gave me an easy path once I knew what to do. For the uninitiated, there is a steep learning curve but this is around the subject matter, not the package. It is a powerful app which has many fail safes. Reading of the difficulties others have had, most seemed linked to misunderstanding what is being attempted. GNUCash is best learnt through the many tutorials and a clear understanding about what the user wants to do. It is intuitive but it deals with a subject that is not - tracking what is happening with finances.

Gnucash has to be one of the best accounting packages available, certainly in the open source and free software categories. It may not be customized to a particular country's tax system, legal and business framework as many commercial packages are but it does have the flexibility to be used world wide, supports Generally Accepted Accounting Practice and can be readily customized for individual requirements.

I have used money management software for years. I have used Microsoft Money & Quicken. I switched to Gnucash about five years ago, because I wanted more control over where the data is stored and who has access to account information. Gnucash provides that over the other software I have used. It does take a bit getting used to the way Gnucash manages accounts and imports data. But, if you take the time to read the manual, and test your own data, you will actually come to appreciate the care and detail provided by this package.

I just downloaded the GNUCASH accounting software and the stupid download added a lovely TROJAN to my computer. Thanks alot. I have since uninstalled the program and quarantined the Trojan. How pathetic. Stay away from this site until someone confirms the download is clean.

Seems really focused towards a retail business. I was looking for something to manage my farm. There is no simple way to track Individual animals or equipment.
