Thanks a lot.
Seems quite promising. I just took a quick look at it, and it seems really cool.

I’ll research this software later on today to see if this will be sufficient for our needs.

Again, thanks.

Cool. Thanks for the info. Looks like it has some potentials. Too bad you don’t have any screenshots on your page.

I’m just curious why no one develop a web-based Open Source accounting system using PHP and MySQL. Sure, MySQL might not be a sufficient engine in a large corporation’s accouning systems, but for small and mid-size business it will certainly be enough.

Just a hint if you feel like changing direction on you project =).

Next time I’ll try using Oracle XE. Free for up to four gigs of data and it does run on Linux.
