Have you ever wished there were a more functional FREE (as in GPL) personal finance program available for Linux? I know I always said there were two things keeping me from dumping Windows entirely
#1 A good Pascal development environment
#2 A financial management package that does scheduled payments and balance forecasts
Since I solved #1, I can write #2 now!
Check out the Freshmeat page!
- Import / Export QIF files (I imported all my old Microsoft Money 2002 data)
- Balances account
- Import OFX file for automatic balancing (online banking!)
- Import from CBB for X-Windows
- Balance history graph
- Sort by date or transaction number
- Category spending piechart
- Supports split transactions
- Prints checks
- Generate XML reports
- Scheduled bill pay
- Balance forecasts
- Balance forecast graph
- Autofill entire transaction based on previous
- Has sound
- No required libraries (other than GTK+)
- It's SMALL! About 2 MB!
- It's fast! Informal tests shows 10 times faster than MS Money with same data!
- Compresses data - a years worth of data takes up about 31k (same data in MS Money takes 3.6 MB)
- It's usable - I'm using it myself now...
- Does not work in AMD64 installs
- Sometimes setting an auto-entered transaction will cause CBT to crash on opening.
