I guess Microsoft is not going to release future versions of Microsoft Money and cancelling the online subscription service. Is anyone here using Microsoft Money and if so are you planning on switching to Quicken.
I have been using Microsoft Money for almost 10 years and I guess it isn't that big of a deal because I don't use the online services. Quicken is releasing patches to help those using Microsoft Money to convert their files over more accurately.
I was wondering if any of you have used Quicken and Money and if so, what are your thoughts on the differences between the programs?
Are there any Google Docs users here? I wonder if lloyd could benefit from that service? Sorry but I don't use quicken, nor google docs for that matter.
I have used Google Docs before, it's a nice service...
google docs is great, but I don't think they offer a finance product at this point. You might want to consider using: http://www.MINT.com
I have a lot of friends that use it, and LOVE it
it's also free, which is a super bonus
I may be wrong, but I was under the impression Google docs has it's own Excel-like application ??? and was wondering if that would be of help to you. It would be free and your data would be backed up, but not sure if that would be able to replace what you're using.
Oh yes, I've heard great things about MINT too.
google does have an excel like application, as does openoffice.org. Microsoft Money is a pretty sophisticated budgeting and checkbook program. It is very nice, but I will eventually want to upgrade. I am using the 2006 version now...
Not I, I use gnuchash a good bit but I've been migrating over to a program I wrote myself to automate things a bit and have more control over what and how I see my data (custom graphs, spending habits, etc).
I've heard a lot of good things about Quickbooks though, so good luck.
I use Mint and it is a totally great service.

Ive used Money for years I started with the first version of it and have upgraded various times. Currently i have version 2000, I may get the last version they release, I never used their online stuff. In time I may convert to Quicken but I doubt it.
