I have chronicled my search for a Mac money management replacement for Microsoft Money. Unfortunately, after trials and testing, I have not found a suitable Mac solution that works fully for me. So, after searching, Quicken for Windows 2010 is my new solution and so far, its working pretty well. There were a few requirements that [...]
A commenter asked for an update on Moneywell and my switch to it for my primary money management platform. Alas, I have to report that its not good news.

Maybe I’m late to the party, but I found that my Quicken Financial Life beta build had expired. Unfortunately, there is also no newer build to download. So, no more testing of that software. But I’m not crying.
I’ve been a loyal Microsoft Money user since 2004 – well, maybe 2003. My transaction logs go back to mid-2004, but I think I decided to start over with a new data file in 2004.
