You can call it GNUCash. GnuCash is personal and small-business financial-accounting software, freely licensed under the GNU GPL and available for GNU/Linux, BSD, Solaris, Mac OS X and Microsoft Windows. Designed to be easy to use, yet powerful and flexible, GnuCash allows you to track bank accounts, stocks, income and expenses. As quick and intuitive to use as a checkbook register, it is based on professional accounting principles to ensure balanced books and accurate reports.

If you’ve used Money before and  don’t want to lose your previous data, don’t worry! You can  import your previous data (e.g file with extension OFX) to your GNUCash. Not only that, GNUCash also support online banking with OFXDirectConnect. You can imagine OFXDirectConnect like importing file with extension OFX from your bank account into GNUCash. So you can save all your money  account information, like file with extension OFX from Microsoft Money, QIF from Quicken, and your bank account into a single program.
