NewsForge: Review: Quasar Linux accounting software is perfect for your small business

“Linux Canada announced the release of Quasar 1.1
accounting and point-of-sale software. The company is offering the
base package as a free download, and the install is smooth as the
cursor trail on a fancy optical trackball mouse.

An easy install is worth a lot to me. I get tired of the
dependency backtrack game sometimes. My /home directory keeps
getting littered with obscure tarballs like “giblib” and “imlib2”
and well, it’s just a pain. The Quasar RPM went in with one click,
and even installed a shortcut in the start menu under “Office.”

The program had immediate possibilities for my family, which
always seems to have at least one small business operating and
sometimes several at a time. Quasar has a serviceable GUI and
intuitive menu options. It is perfect for small business owners
because it doesn’t require the user to have a deep understanding of
ledger-based accounting. Just enter your inventory items, tweak the
accounts, enter everyone in your Rolodex and mark their function
(vendor, customer, salesperson, employee).”
