I'm quite interested in the budgeting, and business reporting unit system,
and one of the things I need is a good story about why LedgerSMB is better
than things like Quickbooks online or Freshbooks, or any of the other accounting
systems out there.

One of my business partners asked me if there was a video about the advantages
of LedgerSMB.. so does anyone have any 'marketing' oriented material, or even
just an interview with some small business owners about why they like this
system over others?

For me, I'm completely sold on 100% open-source for everything my business
runs on. I just need to have something halfway flashy to nice looking to
explain to others why this is a good idea.
