Thanks Mike.  Your comments and those of Russell confirmed my
suspicions regarding GnuCash.  Sluggishness on older machines (like
mine), bit of a learning curve regarding configuration. That's the
trade-off for the rich functionality and flexibility it provides I

Think I'll give it a look and check out the invoicing functionality
while I'm there.
