"Five years ago, Linas Vepstas was working "with a
.com. We were with it, we were hip, we knew which side of our bread
was buttered, we were building this web site with NT...
back then, NT was the once and future king. It was crazy to bet
against Microsoft." Then he discovered Linux--and launched the
GNUCash Project, aimed at developing stable, easy-to-use, flexible
financial accounting software for GNU/Linux."
"Vepstas is now Project Lead and Lead Developer for the GNUCash
Project. Their stated goal: to "create a world-class GPL'ed Open
Source Personal Financial Application for GNU/Linux and other
Unix's." GNU's General Public License (GPL) enables the product to
remain Open Source and continually be modified while still ensuring
the ownership of the developers."
