Quicken on Linux

2002-08-07 16:40:08+00 by Dan Lyke 1 comments

/. reports that it's now possible to run Quicken on Linux with Wine. Time to set up a new box for Charlene so she's got a machine I can admin that doesn't crash so often.

We'll have to see what happens with Quicken Pro 2002 (as opposed to personal) Quickens method of tax table support obsoletes older versions for business purposes, forcing you to upgrade reasonably often. Of course, you can 'not update'.. but then you pay the bookkeeper to update it manually or do it yourself. Time is worth SOMETHING. Quicken Pro is the ONE application we must run daily in Winders, and if there was a bulletproof small-medium well supported accounting package in Linux it would be an important application.
