50 Awesome Open Source Financial Tools. Er…what it says on the tin. Free personal and small business finance programs which you can use to stay financially healthy and safe for ever. Hah! No really.

 One of the great things about open source is that you know the software you’re using is made by real people, who understand real needs. In financial software, we see a great application of this “real people” effect, offering high levels of customization and ease of use. In this software collection, you’ll find tools that were made with you in mind, and are often completely free to boot.

Nigel is the managing editor of the Red Ferret, as well as a freelance columnist for the Sunday Times newspaper in London. Loves tech and fancies himself as a bit of a futurist, but then don’t we all?

  • Wow. The author really did some tough homework on this one. A large number of these applications were abandoned years ago. Many never made it beyond an initial release, and at least one (Chump-Change) has **not released any files**. Given that the Chump-Change project was founded in 2004, it is not likely to ever release any files.

    In my non-humble opinion, I’d call that less than “Awesome.”
