    I would agree that such "feature" will make us see GnuCash 3. Current code base clearly had no intention to become multi-user system. But I will agree with OP also: this feature is REQUIRED for GnuCash to move onto serious business scene.

    My business is small but I'd like to have GnuCash running on my notebook and on my desktop in the office simultaneously. I found it relatively simple: as I am only user I can reload book from open DB over VPN and ignore warning that DB is already open. So it does the job but if I have someone else working on the same DB in my office it may throw things out of balance quickly and may be even corrupt DB.

    Something tells me that POS is beyond scope of GnuCash. I run small online retail myself and have PHP script which acts as GnuCash to modify MySQL DB directly. Works for me. All I need to do is to reload GnuCash each time I need to get my teeth into book keeping: GnuCash does not have any way to detect that MySQL DB was modified externally.

    So in the end it calls for multi-user editing of DB where one of the users is POS system.

    Well, it does. But as I commented in mini-inventory suggestion GnuCash has all necessary data structures and so fixed asset management may be relatively easily implemented.

    Even without fixed asset management subsystem depreciation schedules still have a place in GnuCash.
