GNUCash appears to be the best FLO accounting option but doesn't have all the features needed for nonprofit accounting.

Status Update

Mike Linksvayer:

"LWN (LinuxWeeklyNews) has an ongoing series of articles (so far Ledger and PostBooks) about their quest for free software accounting. Their use case is a small business, but much is still pertinent. Also, I'm reasonably sure there will be an organized initiative to improve free software accounting packages for the non-profit use case later in 2013."
