I do use Quicken as well for Windows; it could be so much better but now that MS Money (is that what it was called?) is no longer maybe the Quicken company will actually put effort into it again. I read that they have put a respected guy in charge of the future development of it, so maybe he can turn it around.
Can you clarify what you mean?I can also be paranoid so worried about using open source SW to track all my cash.
Fair point about commercial SW also sending info; but I think the chances of the info being used to hack into your accounts or steal your identity or something are lower.Can you clarify what you mean?
I can understand being paranoid of non-open-source software, like Quicken, because you don't know what kind of information it's sharing behind the scenes. But with open-source software, the source code is completely available -- you can look at the code directly to see if there's any cause for concern.
Or do you just mean "paranoid" in the sense that you're concerned about the application crashing and causing you to lose your work? (That's a more reasonable concern, I suppose, though GnuCash is pretty stable.)
