"Linux has been missing personal finance manager applications - but no longer. The rush for commercial standard apps has bred some high quality, robust programs for the Linux community."

"GnuCash (www.gnucash.org) is a personal finance manager that is distributed under the GNU Public Licence. The program has a simple graphical interface and can be used for monitoring bank accounts, income, expenses and even shares. GnuCash comes in rpm format and is easy to install. However, a point to note is that the latest versions have been optimised for use with the GNOME desktop environment; to avoid any conflicts, make sure you have the latest GNOME libraries installed...."

"Another useful financial application for Linux is Moneydance (www.moneydance.net). The program claims to be the first of its type completely written in Java, meaning it can run on all machines which have a Java virtual machine. Moneydance has been tested on a variety of operating systems, from Linux and other Unix variants to Windows and Mac."
