is there a home version of Quicken for linux


To date, Intuit has been stubbornly pro-Windows, to the extent of releasing
Mac versions of Quicken that cannot even read the data files of Quicken for
Windows.

Your best bet would be Wine.

No, but there is a market waiting for it to happen. I haven't
successfully gotten Quicken to run in Linux with WINE either. When
people switch 100% to Linux they abandon Quicken for the alternatives.
It is a shame that they have to for both the user and Quicken. While
Linux is a small percent of the market, there may possibly be a good
percentage of this smaller market that would be interested.

Bingo! And that's the exact reason why Intuit doesn't pursue it! What's
the shame here is that there isn't anybody on Linux who can produce a
good enough product to compete with Quicken (and spare me the Gnucash!
Without good support for online banking what's the point?)

Who cares? If the market is small enough, and it is, it really doesn't
matter if you got 100% of the small market! It's too small to start with!

Actually, there is a large enough market to explore, but that is
beside the point. GNU Cash is not a bad option and I think Moneydance
is pretty nice. So you don't get automatic updates. You merely have to
download and import files and use bill pay online. At least the bank
doesn't give you a surcharge.

I am not one to say that Linux is ready to explode on the scene, but
market share is increasing some with the influx of SLCM's or super low
cost machines that are entering the market. Really, its no big deal
whether Quicken enters the market or not. I guess the hard core Linux
advocates would probably not be interested anyway. I like Quicken its
a good product, but not a necessity.

No that's exactly the point. If there were large enough markets to
explore Intuit would be exploring them.

The real market disagrees with you.
So you don't get automatic updates. You merely have to download and
import files and use bill pay online. What a bother!

Yeah you get what you pay for I guess...
I am not one to say that Linux is ready to explode on the scene,
Great because I for one have been hearing that for years. Listen I work
on Linux and Unix machines all the time. I grew up on them, not Windows.
I wish they would explode on the scene. However they aren't - period -
end of story. Perhaps that will change some time in the future but for
now that is not the case - as much as you want it to be, it's not.

The hard core Linux advocates would not be satisfied unless it had a
command line interface!

Perhaps to you but to many, many others it is a necessity. (Either it or
something better).

I never said I wanted Linux to explode on the market.

Yeah and I never said you said that. I said that I wish they would
explode on the scene. So then why do you mention it?

Meantime - learn how to quote properly!

Since you said, "as much as you want it to be, it's not," just wanted
you to know you can't read my mind and I didn't say it. Understand
English?

I can quote just fine pinhead. Just using a poor newsreader at the
time and didn't feel you were worth the effort.
