"One of the primary things that people do with their computers is keeping track of their personal finances. And primarily, balancing their checkbooks. Most former Windows users probably used Quicken and say to themselves "Where is quicken for Linux". Well, there are a few choices in the Linux world and one of them is called Moneydance."

"You can get Moneydance from http://seanreilly.com/java/moneydance/ or from download.cnet.com. And it is available for download, but does cost $20 to register. In order to run Moneydance you will need to have Java installed on your computer."

"If you have Quicken, you can export your old data files and import them into Moneydance. One thing to watch for is that with Moneydance you have to remember to save your changes, unlike Quicken, which AutoSaved them for you. It's a new world but Moneydance can help you to get one step closer to a Microsoft free desktop.
