I've been using GnuCash for a little over a year now, couldn't be happier.
This is just an initial impression, after migrating my wife's Quicken data to GnuCash, but I'm really disappointed in GnuCash's performance. It takes a minute and 20 seconds to start up, which is a couple of orders of magnitude longer than I'd consider good, and an order of magnitude longer than I'd consider reasonable.
nice to see 1.8.12! :)
it's been so long, i'm afraid i'd more or less thought
gnucash had been abandoned.
Re: Gnome required?
It requires the dependencies, but you can use it on any window manager or desktop.
The website says that Gnome is required to run GnuCash, is this really true? I run fvwm2, and run plenty of Gnome apps. I want to give GnuCash a shot, but I don't want to have to change my window manager just for this.
Very nice piece of software! I'm now using it instead of Moneydance.
The latest release og GNUCash is quite functional and stable, I finally switched from Xacc. There are basic reports, the registers work very nicely, and are almost a work of art. The best thing is that you can set a register to only view transactions in a date range, very very nice if you have accounts with high numbers of transactions. Now if only I could use it with an ODBC backend....
