    Quicken, MS Money or Moneydance

    This thread could go here or in FAC, but Im looking for opinions and recommmendations on money managing software.

    Does anyone use Moneydance? I've heard nothing but curses on Quicken having to do with v. 7 and problems with Vista and quicken.

    I use online banking to pay bills and I want to download transactions from credit cards, mutual funds and money markets. Im still using windows xp v. 5.1 i think.

    What has been your experience, if any with these products?

    Im too lazy to build my own spreadsheet TYVM

    Moved to the FAC, since it doesn't deal with the use of IT in planning. Carry on.

    i've used quicken in the past and quick books for some consulting. my distrust of microsoft led me to remove the copy that came installed on one computer. figured maybe bill gates knew how much money i had and could base pricing of the next windows upgrade on that.

    I have been thinking about using quicken.

    We use Quicken. So far so good, and we're not on Vista.

    I used quicken for a few years, now I use this thing called a checkbook. The rest of it is pretty much on automode and it gives me a chance to actually use applied mathmatics!

    We use Quicken. Don't have Vista. Haven't had any problems. It interfaces well with Turbotax, making doing the taxes a lot easier.
