Here is another example of why open source software is necessary.
I've been using MS Money for years, mid-90s at least. A while back my version stopped working, just would not work any more without an upgrade. $35.00 just to keep using a program I had purchased.
The upgrade did not work. I couldn't open the files at all. Contacted customer support and got back instructions. I followed them. I'm no idiot and I've been using a computer since the 80s so I'm no novice either.
Lost all my data since 2001. Like all the tax info I had kept in those files.
Moneydance might have been a better option. Could not have been any worse.
