I turn to the teeming wisdom of Doperland with a question. I’m looking for some accounting software that will enable me as a beginner to set up books for a small business. I’m on a Mac, and would prefer Mac software, though I’ll use Windows or something else on a virtual machine if I need to.
I’ve read that a number of packages keep their data in proprietary binary formats. I don’t want my data to be ‘trapped’ in one vendor’s clutches if I can avoid it; I’d like something that saves in XML/CSV/text as an option.
What’s out there? What have you used? What’s good?
