Am I the only one still running Q2000?

Why upgrade is Q2000 does what you need? I'm running Q2002 and it works for me. However, W98SE??? You've GOT to be kidding!!!!

So you're running a version of Quicken that is 9 (Q10-->Q02) versions 'old' and you're taking to task the OP for running a version of Windows that's only 4 versions (7, Vista, XP, W98SE (maybe 5 if you want to count Mellenium) old? So maybe W98SE "works for him" just as well as your Q works for you!

To be clear, I wasn't try to criticize anything - merely I was bemused bemused. Hope I didn't offend.

Who cares? On UseNet, Andrew, if one dishes it out, one should expect to get it dished back. Q2002 was a damn fine version. W98SE SUCKED.

I ran Q2002 & Win ME until last year. Q (I think) just couldn't handle the size of my database anymore; fortunately, Q2008 was able to.
Q2002 did everything I needed, and the UI was great. There are only 2 things I like better in Q2008 (>30 splits & the fact that it could read my DB), but there's a lot I don't like and I miss Q2002 to this day.
Win ME, on the other hand, I don't miss at all.

I still have a desktop sitting here with Win98se - runs great - BUT.... mostly use our laptops with XP. Every since I moved our laser printer from the Win98se machine, to a stand-alone Axis printer server device connected to the home network, the Win98se machine rarely gets turned on....
Actually had to migrate to the laptop for 99% usage when Q2000 dropped the transaction downloading (every 3 years sunset) and had to upgrade.... but next version would not install on Win98se as the Quicken installer checked - and aborted if attempting to install on Win98se since it was technically "unsupported" by Microsoft.
If not for the sunset issue of each version every couple of years, I'd still be running on Win98se and Q2000.....

Personally, I found Windows XP to be a great improvement over Win98SE. Both my kids run VISTA on their lap tops, but I don't miss it on my desktop.
I think (I think!) that's the release (XP) that enabled each application to receive it's own address space (adopted the Windows NT kernel), so that a failure in one app did not propagate to others, and as such, by and large you can 'shoot' misbehaving apps through Task Manager and not destroy others in the process. But as I get older, my memory starts to fail me. Prior to XP, everything shared a single address space and misbehaving apps affected others. Again, I could have my releases all messed up here.
I want to see what the jury says about Windows 7. My desktop doesn't seem to handle the CD/DVD unit quite right, and my machine is running out of gas, so a new desktop is probably in my future to run the newest Quicken (I had to throw Quicken into this discussion to keep it on topic.)

Anyone who STILL uses W98 is as big an idiot as those who spend far too much for over-priced proprietary Apple shit.

That's me! In the mid-70's, when I could still program in machine language, I never used all 32k of memory and did fine (I thought). Overpriced? 8k of memory cost me $180!

Back in the early 70's I operated a IBM 360 mod 25. Progressed to an IBM 370 125. Both those devices cost hundreds of thousands, at the very least, and had but a fraction of the oomph of a Blackberry.
