I looked at Appgen… wow almost ten years ago now. I was looking at it as a replacement for AccPac and MiSYS, which is what Benshaw was using. At that point in time it was certainly not FOSS. MyBooks also does not appear to be FOSS.

Is there … "accountant grade" software that is multiplatform and OSS? I'm not talking about something to replace the QuickBooks type of stuff for personal and small business, but real industrial grade corporate accounting software that is extensible, has support options and can handle add ons like web stores, inventory, taxes and payroll?
