The Linux OS lacks an effective yet simple checking and banking tool. There are money-management tools for Linux users, of course, but most full-fledged offerings are overkill for monitoring spending patterns and balancing financial accounts. In general, Linux financial applications are either too complex to use without an accounting degree or simple, spreadsheet-style apps that do little more than help you keep an electronic copy of your deposits and withdrawals.

The major problem with the open-source options for checkbook/home banking management is it seems none of then support printing. *Especially* check-printing. Yes, some of us still print checks, and until ability shows up in an open-source home banking application, we'll still be stuck running Quicken98 (yes, the 1998 version, don't need anything from the newer versions) under Wine.

Although I do not print checks, that ability is in Gnucash, which works on all platforms, including Linux. Gnucash can also communicate with the bank.
