Looking for a good but simple Money program for Linux.
The ONLY reason I have a working Windows machine off in the corner is because of the Money program.
I do not like Quicken.
Gnu Cash for Linux is very bloated and I do not need 75% of the features.
I need a checkbook/check register/tracking function
a system of analyzing my expenses via categories
and room for 3 accounts.
that's it..that is what Money does, but it too is pretty bloated, esp. if I use backups.

Any ideas to help me out?
I was looking at...HomeBank for Linux. Anyone used it?

If I could find a decent program, I can toss Windows and give the box back to Mr. Dixie to build another Linux!

You were very helpful, I appreciate it.

5. It was sitting in Synaptic Package Manager, 2 clicks and I had it.
Which means of course that my Linux "accepts" it happily.
Very much like Windows, takes an initial set up of categories and etc but quite easy.
