An open source replacement for QuickBooks?

Is there a high-quality Small Business Accounting system that will replace Intuit's QuickBooks Pro and import QuickBooks Pro's information? I want this to be a free/open source package that will also intergrate work orders.

There are several open source small business accounting packages. I can't vouch for their completeness of functionality, as I haven't used them. One of the advantages of QuickBooks is the ecosystem of other functionality (e.g., payroll services), which is not available for the open source packages. I discussed open source accounting packages in another ATE response; you might want to take a look there.
