Update on my list for Quicken complainers....added "CountAbout" and
"Personal Capital" on the 11/2017 update.

CountAbout (11/2017)
CountAbout launched in mid-2012 and was designed to be a Quicken
alternative.
GnuCash

Mint
Mint is offered by Intuit, but is entirely free personal finance software.
MoneyDance
MoneySpire
2017 is supposedly much better, although import problems still exist

MoneyWiz
Personal Capital (11/2017)
Personal Capital is another decent option, but may not meet all the
features you?ve been using over on Quicken -
it?s more geared toward investments, investment tracking and investment
growth. So, if you?re more worried about investment portfolio than your
outgoing expenses per month,
Personal Capital is a great option.
PocketMoney

Not a Quicken alternative. The program may be used to replace or supplement Quicken quote fetching functionality.

Comments, by the way, are not mine. They're part of the original review or comments by those that supplied me with the info. My personal view is that, worts and all, Quicken remains my personal tool of choice as it has been since 1989. I'm in my 28th year of using it.

As of Nov 1, 2017, NetStock is no longer available. An alternative approach to fetching the quote data is to maintain a fairly simple Google spreadsheet using the GoogleFinance function to pull the share prices on Google Drive.  When needed, we open the spreadsheet and download the cvs to be imported into Quicken.

Same here.

I can't remember exactly when I started, but if it wasn 't 1989, it was only a year or two later.

I started using Quicken in the late eighties. At that time they had a presence on Compuserve and answers from Intuit employees were very helpful

Ah, I see that from the URL. OK, will make a note of that. I had that in there, but of course in my particular case Quicken does a fine job of retrieving my data that consists of a few indexes and listed securities. It was there for reference for others.

Thanks - I cut that out directly from the article I read about it I believe, but I updated my text file.

I read a couple of posts about people having some issues like password problems and the link and just don't understand that. I've got about a half a dozen different filesets, and just don't see the issues many people are complaining about. The ONLY time I had an Intuit ID issue recently I did receive an email about simply using another ID to open the file with and all was well.
I don't understand those folks that have such a myriad of issues and decide to quite. Maybe their usage or particular setups are overly complicated. Q's a tool to get you some freedom and relieve you of stress, not add to it.
