GnuCash Portable
GnuCash is a comprehensive accounts package for small businesses and personal use.

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 chequebook register, it is based on professional accounting principles to ensure balanced books and accurate reports.

Because it sticks to double entry accounting, the standard accounting method, GnuCash is not as easy to use from the start as some programs, unless you already have some experience with double entry systems. As with the original paper based double entry system, it takes a little getting used to, but once you get the hang of it, this is the best way to work - that's why the professionals use it.

GnuCash can import accounts from other programs, converting to its internal system with minimal fuss. Then it supports all the features you would expect of a package suitable for small businesses as well as home use. Several types of report and graph are built in or you can customise your own, although this is not as simple as with some other programs. Multiple currencies, stock portfolios, invoicing and bill payments. It can also interface with the online banking systems used by many banks to reconcile statements and even initiate transfers in some cases.

This is not the easiest program to get started with, unless you already have some basic bookkeeping knowledge, but accounting was never meant to be fun, only effective, and GnuCash is certainly effective.

Note that this is the portable version of GnuCash.

Verdict:

GnuCash can be tricky to get to grips with initially, but well worth the effort. Simpler custom reports would earn it a 5.

Windows 10 October 2018 Update (build 1809)

Free Full Commercial Software

This is the latest version of Windows October 2018 Update. it's a media creation tool that can be used to upgrade an existing installation of Windows or create installation media for another PC. Just make your choice after launching the tool and it'll do the rest.

What was new in Windows 10, when it was released? The OS brought back the Start Menu, though with a Windows 8 twist: live tiles keep you up-to-date with the latest news while also providing an easy way to launch apps. (Don't worry if you prefer the Start Screen, it's still there and you can boot into it if you prefer.)

Apps now work much more like regular desktop programs. They have minimise, maximise, restore and close buttons, and can be resized (to a degree) and organised however you like.

If you've still lost track of a program in the mass of open windows, a new Task Spaces feature can help. Click its taskbar button and you'll see thumbnails for everything running now, a little like OS X's Mission Control - just click something to switch to it.

Better still, Task Spaces also supports virtual desktops. Add extra desktops as required and it'll display thumbnails of each one, making it easy to identify whatever you're after and switch to it.

There's also smarter snapping, new customisation options, and even a bunch of experimental additions to the command prompt.

Fall Creators Update brings a whole host of new features for Windows 10. See the Microsoft Blog for more information.

The Windows 10 ISO here will give you build 1809 which is the October 2018 Update.
