As far as I know there isn't a 'free' open source accounting package
that comes anywhere near as complex as SAGE.  I speak from bitter
experience of SAGE :-(  It's possible that there is a commercial
package that will run on Linux though, I have a feeling I read about
something like that not too long ago.  For the life of me I cannot
remember where though, sorry.
