TurboCASH open source accounting is free
TurboCASH .7 is the world's first major open source accounting software product distributed under the General Public License (GPL). There are many free accounting products out there, however they are almost always cut-down versions, or limited to 30 day free trials. TurboCASH Accounting software is available for free download off the web, as is the full source code.

a word of encouragement from one of our stanch supporters:
Briefly all I can say is that I applaud your decision to open
source TurboCASH. Consider yourself one of my heroes! As a long
time opensource supporter, user and contributor, this is fantastic
for the opensource world, fantastic for the accounting software
industry, and fantastic for small businesses of which I am involved
in many! I have implemented TurboCASH since the DOS days and am
very pleased at this news.
