freedom is also important, but we each decide our own priorities. i have 
been quite happy with gnucash for almost decades. i have very simple 
requirements, though. i glance through the release notes for gnucash and 
there seems to be many new features that it keeps adding [most likely 
prompted by quicken], but i don't use them. each situation is probably 
going to be different.

for taxes, again, i have a simple situation of one income from one 
employer. but my solution has been to use the paper forms. as a web 
programmer, i just don't trust the other end ... of course, i'm probably 
in no better situation regarding privacy; nonetheless, there is 
something satisfying about using an outdated method to interact with a 
huge bureaucracy, but i think it has little to do with the technologies 
involved ...
