GnuCash is DFSG-free, if that sort of thing appeals to you. For what
I use it for, GnuCash works very well. But then I don't try to print
checks or invoices or what not with it; I don't know if it supports
this at all (other people swear by equivalent features in non-free
software). It also seems to be more suited towards double-entry-style
record-keeping than other systems, which appeals to me since I keep
paper records in a similar format.
I think I agree that GnuCash could use a bit of work in the polishing
department. But if you just want something to keep records for you
and actively disbelieve in the features it doesn't have, it's great.
