"Take care of the pence, and the pounds will take care of themselves," wrote Lord Chesterfield to his son in 1750. Today, this simple advice is as difficult to follow as it was 255 years ago. But we are lucky to have some powerful open source applications that make the task a bit easier. The Grisbi project aims "to provide you with the most simple and intuitive software for basic use," but this doesn't mean it is light on features. It supports multiple currencies, account reconciling, import/export of QIF files, and reports, and all this functionality is wrapped up in a user-friendly interface and available for a variety of platforms, including Linux, Windows, and Mac OS X.

As a Romanian and IT fanatic, I've watched the rise of Linux and open source from a different point of view than most. Romania went through a revolution in December 1989, and since then many things have changed, including computers and the way they are perceived by a country that is better known for its Dracula figure than its IT involvement.

We have our software firms that produce quality software, such as BitDefender. Last but not least, we have our Linux user groups, and now a magazine dedicated to Linux and open source software.
