Accounting software is a major pain point for those who wish to switch to free alternatives. Certain commercially available software programs are so good that even well-written, free competitors pale in comparison. Intuit's Quickbooks is one such commercial program that's hard to beat for usability, support and widespread adoption. However, there are some contenders that deserve consideration.

"Nola Pro is such an option available for Windows and Linux. Nola Pro is multi-user, web-based, easy to install and use and is secure. There's also an online version that requires no installation (Nola Pro On-Demand) and is available for a monthly fee. GnuCash is another free accounting program for business or personal use that is a replacement for Microsoft Money, QuickBooks and Microsoft's Office Accounting Express.

"If Nola Pro or GnuCash don't fill your needs, FreeByte compiled a list of free financial and accounting software for you to check out for yourself."
