"Not feature rich but well laid out and easy to use, more polished than Quicken"4.0 starson by cr_buck
Pros: An easy transition for those transitioning from pen and paper
Cons: Advanced online features aren't as automatic as Quicken even if easier to use
Summary: I have tried both Quicken 2008 and Money and I have found myself frustrated. Money has online capabilities but it doesn't work with all banks and requires a hack to get it understand the new Quicken file format. At least it can understand it though. I really wish it had the payment history calendar like Quicken but if I had to deal with Quickens clunky horrible interface I would rather just deal without and stick with Money. The link file to transaction features is nice but only allows you to link 1 document leaving you to combine several into one. Also since they are seperate of the Money files if someone happens to mess around with that folder Money won't know what happened to them. I really hope Microsoft improves and expands on this feature to be more like Quickens because I really use it. Other than that is is well organized. Just plan to spend a little time doing some research getting web sites dedicated to Quicken to work with Money.
