I have had it with Quicken and want out! I am considering switching to Moneydance. I noticed in the blogs that there will be a new version this fall. My question is if I purchase Moneydance 2008 now will I be updated to 2010?

Also my biggest grip with Quicken is that after 3 years of use the cripple it to force you to upgrade. If I purchase Moneydance and am happy with every thing it is doing for me will I be forced, in a similar way to buy the latest version?

    Hi Rich

    If you buy Moneydance 2008 you will get a free upgrade to MD2010 when it is released.

    We have never and shall never force our users to upgrade by crippling the software. Many do choose to upgrade because we often provide free upgrades. Or if the user purchased a significant amount of time ago the upgrade cost is at a considerable discount. (I believe there was a $20 charge upgrading from MD2004 to MD2008) And in such situations if the user does not wish to pay for an upgrade they can continue to use their existing software with out loss of functionality.

    Hey Ben,
    Thanks for the quick response! Your answers to my questions were exactly
    what I wanted to here! The heavy handed greed of Quicken could be there
    downfall! I informed them that they have after many years as a customer,
    they had driven me away. None of the changes that have been made to Quicken
    2009 apply to how I use the software and 2006 was doing everything I needed
    it to. So I fail to see why I should pay them an additional $50.00 for
    changes that I will not use.

    I am looking forward to being long time customer of yours.
