    I downloaded the Windows version last night and love it. With Linux and Open Office, I am almost ready to kiss Microsoft goodbye. Now, if only there were a good Linux replacement for Quickbooks (which is in the pay of the evil empire, I think).

    I know what you mean. We're running QuickBooks 2000 Pro under Win4Lin, and that's the only app for us that there is no Linux equivalent. There are many Linux book keeping programs, but we found most to be unsatisfactory in business, and only one or two offer payroll services. What I wouldn't give if someone were to make a QuickBooks clone for Linux using, or at least able to accommodate, the .QBW file extension.

    Last audit, our new CPA was amazed we were still running QB Pro 2000! She can't understand how we have avoided "upgrading." QuickBooks is like Windows in that they pressure you into to upgrading whether you want to or not. For their profits of course...

    QB 2000 Pro is more than adequate for our needs, and they shouldn't try to force us to upgrade unless we need or want to.

    Sorry... I wasn't trying to hijack the thread...

    I've revived an old thread concerning accounting apps. If anyone can help, please post a repy on that thread. I sure would like to find a good accounting package. It doesn't even have to be free!
