I am helping a friend start up a new home business, and I was looking at cost effective solutions. As of now, I am going to setup a server running a SUSE Enterprise Sever with Windows XP Pro/Vista Home Premium in a Virtual Machine. That way he has one system that will double as an application/file server, with stability and scalability and robustness. I was looking for some accounting software (preferably open source) that would be reasonable for someone to learn, and utilize that is stable and cost effective. I was considering utilizing something that pulled info from a MySQL Db. I have several options, to choose from, I am just looking for some info on what software is good or not good.
