I'm sorry to say that GNUCash is nowhere near an alternative to Sage. 
It is a very good program and can be used for personal or sole trader
accounts, but it hasn't been any good for my needs when preparing UK
Limited Company Accounts.
As I haven't found anything else suitable for accounts on linux I'm
still having to dual boot my computer into Sage every time I need to
work on the accounts :(
If anybody else can contradict me on this I'd be really pleased, as Sage
is the only windows program that I can't find a linux alternative for.
