Well, today I took a very big step. After using MD for about 2 months, I deleted Quicken from my computer. It was a liberating experience. Has anyone else recently made this wonderful step in the right direction?

    I haven't deleted Quicken yet, but I am very close.

    The more I work with MoneyDance, the more I like it. Like any software, there are possible enhancements, but I find the program very intuitive. I love getting back to true double-entry. My records were in pretty good shape before importing them, but I've been able to identify some transactions from the old program that needed to be "cleaned up"...particularly some entries where I had to "fudge" the date one day either direction in order to prevent the previous program from creating extra, unneeded entries.

    Importing data into MoneyDance makes the third time, and it was the least eventful. With the MoneyDance transition, I had no records I had to totally rekey in. I just had some edits. I can't say the same for moves to the programs before MoneyDance. The import didn't work at all with transition to the last program so I ended up rekeying years of data and lost some pricing history with my investments along with it.

    I find the software response in MoneyDance is a lot faster than with the other programs. One thing I really like is MoneyDance's cross-platform capabilities. I moved to MoneyDance because of that. MoneyDance was the solution to the last issue I had with the move to a new operating system for two of my computers.

    Welcome to the club.

    I didn't have to delete my Quicken. After years of using PCs and Quicken I switched to a mac in January. Since Intuit has abandoned the apple ios, I tried a couple of other things and then settled on MD. Didn't take me long to import my data and (thanks to the great support here!) work out a few conversion kinks.

    Still learning some of the ropes, but happily plunked down my $49!
