"Here is an unpleasant confession for an LWN author to make: I actually still use Windows. I boot it to run exactly one program - an old, proprietary personal finance application. It's the only thing I have ever found useful on Windows. Occasionally I look around for a free replacement so that I can recover that one last, small partition on my disk. This article is the result of my latest attempt - driven, additionally, by the sinking feeling that my current application probably won't handle the next century very well..."

"GnuCash has been one of the more promising developments in the personal finance arena for some time. For a very long time, actually; it is honestly surprising that an application area that could be so useful to so many has taken so long. Anyway, GnuCash came about as the result of a merger between two earlier projects: Xacc and GnoMoney. The combined effort has progressed more quickly than would have otherwise happened."

"The latest release is 1.2.5, which came out on November 24. It is intended to be a "stable" version - one that you might actually trust your finances to."
