This web site has lots of great programs lots are free http://sourceforge.net/.
Click find software and then choose what your looking for. You will need to check the details to see if they work with mac.
I hope it is help full. Lots are free, testing, or beta.
I don't run windows so I find what I need there or at http://freshmeat.net/browse/18/. Choose your operating system then search for what your looking for.
I looked under Mac osX and did a search for accounting and got http://freshmeat.net/search/?q=accounting&trove_cat_id=839&section=trove_cat&Go.x=14&Go.y=10. I hope it is helpful
I tend to use free software to keep my costs down.

For Office I use http://www.openoffice.org/ works on Mac osX and Win also free down load

software for mac

Was just in the Apple Store this afternoon and spoke to them about that very subject. They suggested using a program called Boot Camp. This program allows you to run any windows application a normal PC would run.

If you ever had problems with your PC, for example a virus and all the other stuff I have long forgotten, you will face the same problems as well! The program Boot camp just allows the windows program to operate directly with the Duro II processor on your mac. The program runs on your mac in its own environment. So all the virus's that windows like to suck up - it will, but your mac will not be affected or infected.

Parallel is another program that allows you to run microsoft programs, but this program will slow all your processes down. It is sort of like an interpreter between your mac than your processor and than your microsoft program and back and forth.

Best of luck to you! Go down and see the people at the Apple Store, they are awesome!
