Thanks for th tip Jack. I'm gonna take a look at it.

On their FAQ they say:

"5. When are commercial licenses absolutely required for Quasar

You require a commercial license for Quasar Accounting Software when
Quasar is connected directly or indirectly to an application such as a
database or other application that is not licensed under GPL."

... which doesn't make any sense to me whatsoever. Do these people NOT
know what GPL is? Or am I way off?
