Just in case anyone is interested, CompUSA is now carrying Money2004. Seems a
bit early, but aparently they aren't letting up on pressuring Intuit.

Looks like 4 versions: Basic, Deluxe, <Platinum?> and Business. $20-$30 Rebates
available to bring the price down for all but the Basic version.

Also note that the new generation development of KBH, 'KBH Investor
Accounting', became available as a shareware download early in 2003. Here is
a user link to the program:

I read the comments in the Money NG about it. They're not very enthusiastic
about it. Doesn't seem like there's much difference from $03. Several
posters said they didn't see any $03 bugs fixed in $04.

Whatever. I'm still waiting for something better than Quicken; it might be
a long wait.

Hmm, Money 2004 is out in the stores, but MSoft's web site still pushes
Money 2003. Very strange. Microsoft is usually more on-the-ball ... with
marketing at least. ;-)

Microsoft has been spread rather thinly lately. Cost cutting is the new focus because their growth is slowing.

Then again, they just annouced the hiring of 1500 new engineers (2/3rds in
Redmond) for working on new projects...

Yeah, with 50,000,000,000USD in the bank, no less...

Am I the only one to notice the 2 to 3 years "Online Services" for Money?
Two years for Standard, and 3 years for the rest. In their fineprint,
"Online Services" includes "downloading transactions from your financial
instutions"? WTF??? Does this mean a user would not be able to download
their transaction 2 to 3 years from the day they run Money? Is this the
same with Quicken US version? (I don't know, because I am still running
Q2002). What does a user downloading from his own financial instution
have to do with the software maker AFTER a user has already bought his
copy of the software? How could MS stop a user from being to download
their fianancial transactions 2 to 3 years from now?

Get with it. Whether you like it or not, this type of software (at least
from Intuit, and now also MS) is going to be "subscription"-ware. IOW,
you have to (yearly, monthly, whatever) pay your fee (or upgrade to a new
version) in order to keep the software functional. I'm sure it's easily
done by having the software check some website to see what its expiration
date is.

And who do you think provides OFX support to your bank?

Microsoft or Quicken, that's who! And your bank pays for it, too. So do
you, through your bank fees. So if Microsoft or Quicken stop supporting
specific versions of their products, what can your bank do but discontinue
support for those version?

It is frustrating, but there is not much we can do. This is what you get
with a duopoly. There is currently no viable mass-market solution for PFM
software other that MS Money or Quicken. I know there are other solutions
out there but none with the market presence and acceptance as those 2.

Force me and I will not.
I was just about to add this same sentiment before I clicked on Send for

If you think that any of that money is going to go to customers, you are seriously disillusioned.
