Just to let you know. It's possible to have your old data in LedgerSMB.

There is experimental support for migrating from SQL-Ledger via Setup.pl

We need to test this support. It would be great if you could do it. It 
can help many people in the same situation with less expertise in the area.

As all other software, LedgerSMB have bugs, they on the Tracker:

We have been down to one bug earlier this year. You are welcome to work

include it LedgerSMB. Take a look.

More LedgerSMB users = better software,
if everyone contributes what they can.
