KMyMoney is a comprehensive finance-tracking application that does not require an accounting degree to use effectively.
Linux provides several hearty checkbook and banking programs. Among the more well-known are GNUCash, Grisbi, Skrooge and MoneyDance. Each of these contenders for your attention have their own unique look and feel.
GNUCash is as much of a standard among Linux users as was MSMoney for Windows users before Microsoft dropped that application. GNUCash is designed for the Linux Gnome desktop. It is more feature-heavy than KMyMoney. KMyMoney, on the other hand, is designed for the Linux KDE desktop.
