21 of the Best Free Linux Financial Software

21 of the Best Free Linux Financial Software

The repercussions of the credit crunch have continued to occupy headline news in recent weeks. We have witnessed the demise of Lehman Brothers and Washington Mutual, the rescue of AIG, Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac, the sale of Merrill Lynch, the proposed merger of Lloyds TSB and HBOS (which would never have been permitted under normal circumstances), and the list goes on.

Yet, even in such volatile markets there remain significant profit opportunities for the day trader. For example, earlier this month £103bn was added to the UK blue chip companies (representing a record 8.84% jump) in a single day. Banks that have seen their share prices tumble over the past year may may bounce back and prove again to be fantastic long-term investments. This article selects quality software that help individuals keep track of stock market movements, analyse the markets, and identify stock worth buying.

In this article, we also feature the best personal finance software available for Linux, as well as covering the corporate end of the market with accounting software and business solutions.

Two financial applications which did not make it into the list but are worth mentioning are NolaPro and Quasar Accounting. Both of these accounting applications are high quality and available to download without charge. However, the term 'free' in this article relates to software released under an open-source license. NolaPro and Quasar Accounting are, unfortunately, released under proprietary licenses.

To provide an insight into the quality of software that is available, we have compiled a list of 21 high quality Linux financial software. Hopefully, there will be something of interest for anyone who wishes to organise their finance affairs.

Now, let's explore the 21 financial applications at hand. For each title we have compiled its own portal page, providing a screenshot of the software in action, a full description with an in-depth analysis of its features, together with links to relevant resources and reviews.
