Sigh... I think my 16+ year Quicken relationship is about to end

I can almost deal with the annoying flashing bug.
But now I'm in some mode where all online updates
just seem to be stuck.
I can't stand that Intuit has just decided to
take a crap all over their customers.
I guess they figure as long as I keep re-upping,
I'm happy. Well, I'm not, and I think I'll
start looking for better software.

Microsoft Money, the only significant competitor to Quicken, is now discontinued. Quicken is practially a monopoly. So don't expect Intuit to love up its customers.

Maybe I can save you some time, I've been looking for about 7 years and there is nothing that even begins to compare.
If you find something please let me know, thanks.

I have installed Ubuntu as a Linux package on my laptop. It works very fast, and it almost looks as if gnucash will be able to supplant Quicken. Obviously the importing from Quicken-exported qif files leaves a lot to be desired, and the program does seem to behave significantly differently. I don't have the time or inclination to experiment excessively, but someone with time shoudl try and report experiences (grinnning!! - because I am too lazy to do it myself!!!)

Let the Record show that XS11E on or about Fri, 26 Jun 2009 14:38:59 -0700 did write/type or cause to appear in alt.comp.software.financial.quicken the following:
As I said, I found Quicken 2005 to be such, that I found nothing better. And that is exactly what I've been using for the last three years: nothing.

If you really feel that way then you're an idiot for continue to endure being crapped on. I don't or didn't feel crapped on - I just gave up on Windows. I guess they figure as long as I keep re-upping, I'm happy. Well, I'm not, and I think I'll start looking for better software.
You have an incorrect opinion that they which to keep you happy. They don't care if you're happy or not. They only care that you purchase their product. And this is exactly as it should be in a free market economy.

Good luck with GnuCash. I have a client who replaced her Dell windows laptop with one of their Ubuntu machines. I set her up with GnuCash as a replacement to QuickBooks. It works but I find it a little clunky compared to Q or QB.
Here is a link to a GC user e-mail list and message archive:

As I mentioned, I haven't realy used gnuc ash, and certainly not as a replacement for QuickBOOKS (I'm a casual user of Quicken, not quickbooks).
Btw, I find the mailing list archives a bit clunky to peruse as well, and the https link doesn't really work for me.

It's Andrew DeFaria. One has to adapt to his ways or ignore him. Unfortunately, the pearls of wisdom that he does have (I kid you not) get drowned out by his ways ... Really too bad.
Andrew, I respect your wisdom, but I couldn't distill anything from your post either.

I found the archives okay for researching problems okay but on an on-going get help mode I agree it does not work well. I was able to set up the mailing list in Thunderbird so that I can download and respond via a regular e-mail program.

Well, I like it better if there is a usenet newsgroup-like way. But I am not really up to the switch yet, so for the moment I'll stay with Q2008. Should be good at least for another 2 years. By that time I might be retired ... Yeah!! Hope the stock market will start performing soon ...

Only for idiots such as yourself who are incapable or unwilling to update their tools to handle modern communications, yet. I find wasting my valuable time with such social ingrates not worth the effort. Andrew, I respect your wisdom, but I couldn't distill anything from your post either.
Then you need better tools. And don't you come back replying to this post lest you prove to all that you are a liar too!

He's probably like American tourists who travel to Europe and insist on speaking English and paying for things in dollars.

I see. So first you claim you cannot distill anything from my post which turns out to be a bold faced lie since you obviously read it, understood it and now you reply to it. And now you have the threat of "plonk" seemingly to mean that you've killfiled me. Well you lied before, why should we believe you now? Frigging loser!

As a born Dutchman, and now a US citizen, when I now go to Europe I use mostly plastic to pay for things. I try to use my Dutch bank account, though, since the ? is far too expensive.

What the FUCK is the problem? Just get a half-assed decent new group reader like Windows Live Mail and you'll have no trouble dealing with HTML. This is 2009, for effing sake.
