And ledger has come a long way since its initial revision.

Thank you, John, for writing ledger and thank you everyone else who

Thank you for noticing, Alexis! Indeed, it did begin that long ago, originally as a CVS repository on my G4 MacBook at the time. I was staying at my brother's house in San Jose for a few weeks while looking for an apartment, living off savings, which is what made knowing my financial situation at the time a critical factor. Thus Ledger was born, since GNUcash wasn't satisfying all of the different reporting needs that I had then.

On to another 20! :)

Happy 20th birthday Ledger!

You may look simple in comparison to others, but that only shows true flexibility does not mean something needs to look more complex to be more useful.
