HomeBank: A Fine Financial App

Filed under
Software

Keeping track of personal and business finances is one of the most essential tasks I do daily on my computer besides researching and writing about the Linux platform. Lately I am assigning much more of that task to HomeBank to keep my banking transactions in order.

Do not confuse this personal accounting system with a banking institution of the same name, based in Martinsville, Ind. HomeBank, the Linux app, dates back to the 1995 Amiga computers. HomeBank, the banking community, has evolved since 1885 and has no connection beyond its name to the open source personal accounts manager, which is available in 50 languages on the GNU/Linux, FreeBSD, Microsoft (Nasdaq: MSFT) Windows, MacOSX platforms. It is based on GTK2.

I mentioned the HomeBank app last year in a quick comparison of personal finance tools for Linux. Since then, I have expanded my familiarity with the HomeBank package.
