Another accounting application, for Mac, Windows and Linux is Moneydance: http://moneydance.com/ I’ve been using it for years so can’t really view it objectively any more, or compare it to any alternatives. But it seems to do most things for me and the folks behind it seem alright. Some of it is slightly too US-centric though, and it’s more of a personal finance tool rather than for companies.
For what it’s worth, people I know who use Xero really love it, which isn’t a sentiment you hear often about finance software in my experience.
