Keep tabs on your finances with HomeBank

Posted by: Anonymous [ip: 74.94.103.33] on September 30, 2008 07:42 PM
Being a 99.999% Linux convert, how does this software compare to Quicken? I still have a hanging thread back to WindowsXP via VirtualBox in Ubuntu to run Quicken.

I have honestly never heard of HomeBank before { but had never really looked for it either }.

I'll give HomeBank a shot at importing 5+ years of data, and see what happens. But really it doesn't look like it is as powerful, or contains a comprable feature set as Quicken.

Dont get me wrong, i'm all for FOSS, but in the end it has to provide something that works well, and has the gusto to empower the user. I'll gladly plop down some $$ to Intuit every couple years for software that works really well.
