I guess you are talking about your own personal finances, and that of a
small to medium business, right?

I am a lawyer, and I am able to manage with OOo calc! There is also OOo
Base for database.
Secondly is something that manages client data. I would prefer something
> that can do both. It goes without saying that I am looking for a linux app.
I am mostly a Free Software kind of guy, and I try to avoid non-Free
Software, but I make an exception for Google services. I really like
Google's services, because my data is searchable anywhere on the planet, and
I can easily access my data from whatever terminal I am at, even if it
happens to be a cell phone with Internet access, or, heaven forbid, a
Windows terminal!! The power of Google to search my contacts is something
that I simply could not live without.
