Are there any other reasonably feature-complete alternatives available? In terms of requirements, online transaction downloads, investment tracking, and being able to manage both personal and business accounts are important.

What else is out there that may fit the bill? I'm aware of gnucash...anything else?


In a word, nope. This question comes up here from time to time but I have yet to here back any really positive reviews from users here regarding a better alternative, especially at the level you appear to use Quicken.

My advice is always to wait till the February-April time period to upgrade Q and then only every three years when pressed by the sunset policy when features such as downloads from banks and brokerage houses will cease to work. That way the current version has been out for several months and hopefully Intuit has issued the required revisions to fix those problems you hear about right after a new release.

YMMV,
Kurt
