[Discuss] Personal finance software on Linux

I recommend biting the bullet and running Quicken in a Windows virtual
machine on Linux. Having tried all the Linux (and several of the Mac)
options, none of them was as capable as Quicken, which has been
holding my financial information for several decades reliably. I am
occasionally frustrated by the quirky reporting capability, which
provides only certain ways to represent the data, and one or two small
but persistent bugs, but overall I'm satisfied.

Money is kind of important so I recommend throwing FOSS allegiences
aside for this one. :-) Likewise for taxes (I run TurboTax in that
same VM).
