But it is the best option out there....

Yes, tis true. I'm no big fan of MS, but I was nonetheless a happy MS-Money user for about a decade. I purchased Q yesterday. Not terribly impressed so far, but not completely put-off either.

First, I imported my Money file, which was a mess, for various reasons, and it was, understandably, a mess afterward. But the import process seemed to work well.

Decided to start fresh; created a new file. But Quicken could not access my bank (one supposedly "supported"). Furthermore, it crashed. Hard. Twice. Undaunted, I logged on to the bank's website and downloaded the accounts manually in Quicken format. This worked.

Then I tried to download my Fidelity accounts - no success whatsoever. Fidelity always worked seamlessly with Money, but does nothing with Quicken.

I think I can learn to live with Quicken but they don't make it easy
