I   suppose   a  Web-based  tool  would  serve  you  well  and   also   be
platform-independent.  I  am  not  sure  how well  this  would  work  with
barcodes, which have to integrate with the software over the network (make
sure  they  are not bound to software vendors or hardware  manufacturers).
When  you  said "inventory", my initial thought was  "personal  inventory"
(i.e.       something      that      a      simple      spreadsheet      <
http://freshmeat.net/projects/phpwebsheet/  >  can cater for).  There  are
various  financial packages that contain an inventory module. I hear  good
things about < http://www.sql-ledger.org/ >, but I have no experience with
it. Explore the link which Dick has added.

Best of wishes,
