"This seems like a good time to reconsider the alternatives available for Linux, so I spent some time looking at a few of the possibilities. What follows here is a "first impression" summary of the four programs I installed and tried. All that I have tried to do so far is transfer the data from Quicken, and then do enough basic set up to be able to get a feel for how the program will work, what it will look like, and how it will handle come common transactions.

"A quick word about obtaining and installing these programs. Depending on what distribution of Linux you are using, you will find some or all of these programs in the "Software Manager", "Package Manager", or "Add/Remove Software". If you don't find the particular program you are looking for, you can usually go to the web page for that particular package (I have tried to include links when I can, and when I remember), and get it from there. I did all of this testing on Linux Mint, because all four of these packages are in the Mint Software Manager. The average time to download, install and start one of them was about two minutes. It doesn't get any easier than that."
