TurboCASH For Linux?

A popular Windows accounting package looks to move into the Linux space. This is an excellent move since it appears that there is currently no real alternative option (maybe GNUCash?) available for SME Linux users at the moment...
Software developer, Philip Copeman, is looking for programmers to build a Linux version of the popular windows-based open source accounting software, Turbocash... The Linux version of Turbocash will have to be re-developed from the ground up... "The database will most likely be Firebird or MySQL," says Copeman. [He] says there are no real Linux competitors in the SME (small to medium-sized enterprise) end of the [accounting software] market... "We estimate that a million users would change to a Linux system if they had the choice." --TECTONIC

There is a good open source alternative for Linux: Tiny ERP. They support general accounting, cost accounting and budgets.
More info on
Or: apt-get install tinyerp-server tinyerp-client

They have an accounting only package: tiny accounting.
