why do all these "budget" progams end up so complicated for 99% home users - if you are business , yes you need to do taxation / assets / cashflow / depreciation / etc - a 'home user' had money coming on (usualy once a month), and money comming out (a bank transer once a month), or out the ATM/Debit card

ie. balance + money in - money out = new balance !

try excel (or free open office)

The idea of loading my financial information into an open source program off the internet just gives me the security shivers. I'll take my chances balancing my own checkbook.

Hilarious
This is for the aid in doing so dumba**. Actually the idea of a person (namely u) balancing their own checkbook is what is scary.

@ Cris3

Would you feel safer entering your details into a closed source app where the code is hidden and you have absolutely no idea where your personal data going or whats being done to it?

Oh well while there are people like you to keep data thieves/hackers busy, it leaves people like me in the clear. Good for you kid.

This is a nice simple app BTW. Right fit for me.

It seems some people really have no idea what open source means. Ok, so this program is freely downloadable off the internet. If it was closed source, that *could* be scary - without trying it, you have no idea what it might be doing under the hood with all your figures. But because it's open source, that means anyone can look at or change the source code. So if someone with dark motives adds some 'backdoor' into this, that backdoor can immediately be seen by everyone else who works on programming it. We're not all programmers, but anyone who is one can see exactly what this program does, warts and all. So doesn't that make it safer ?
