Switching to GunCash and away from Intuit Quicken was the best thing I could do for myself! GnuCash is fantastic is every way, whereas Quicken did everything they could do to make me their Bitch. Way back in the early nineties, I setup Quicken on the Mac to handle foreign currencies, which was a do-able hassle and I am amazed to find Quicken on the Mac *still* can't handle foreign currencies. But Quicken Windows could at least in the early 2000 when I made the move from Quicken Mac to Quicken Windows to gain such 'advanced features'.
But the worst part is the business model Intuit has! They want charge me for the software, with frequent annual upgrades, while also charging 'participating banks' another fee for Quicken Export format of transaction data. Since I have banks in The Netherlands who won't buy into Intuit's US-centric game, had I not migrated away from Quicken Windows finally in 2008, I'd still be forced to enter every little transaction by hand, from all banks, credit cards, PayPal, etc., until the books are balanced. Thank Goodness GnuCash allows me to download these Dutch transactions in MT940 format!! And like QuickBooks, GnuCash allows me to create and track the invoices sent out. I can't say enough good things about GnuCash and can't say how much I hate Intuit and am so glad to be free from them after so much time and effort wasted while being trapped by them.
