Best "alternative" Budget Software?

Hi All,

I'm cutting my teeth on making budgets and until recently have been doing things on Excel. I want to upgrade :)

MovieMagic is the gold standard and Gorilla is also popular but...I have to pull a few more shifts at work until I can afford them.

Of the 'off-Broadway' budget programs I've heard of:

-BudgetCheetah ($30)
-Indie Budget Buddy (Free)
-Genie Workbench (Free...for now, in beta)

Has anyone used any of these? Any major pros or cons to speak of? Are there others that I haven't seen yet?

Thanks much :)
