Is LedgersSMB free software?

Yes, its open source. The tools we use (Perl, PostsgreSQL, Apache ++) are also open source.

Open source means that the source code of the software is available for free to everyone and you can modify the code and distribute it yourself. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Open_source

Look for a place to contribute. This means not only programming, but also documentation, theme design, art work, or architectural design.

I'm not an accountant, how do I learn how to keep my books?

Quite a few users find some of the terminology and accounting processes a little confusing at first. Some of the more popular small business accounting packages tend to hide these aspects of book-keeping from users for simplicity, so with the current user interface there is often some new ideas to grasp.

First step is the manual - the LedgerSMB manual is free and highly recommended reading.
