    Missing KEME Accounting. A multiplatform and opensource project. I have discovered it recently and from what I am seeing it seems the only alternative in Linux for professional use. It is worth a look.

    You lack a heavyweight like gnucash

    How is it possible that Gnucash is not on this list!

    It even has an app in the Play Store that syncs with the desktop app.

    It is worth it.
