I'm seriously considering buying a new Chromebase computer to replace my Mac. I've been using Moneydance for years now and would like to know if it will work on the Chromebase. Here's the Amazon link for the Chromebase.

Thanks for the assist.

    I heard you when you replied to me as far as Chromebooks are concerned. However my question had to do with the new Chromebase. Please let me know if MD can run on the Chromebase.

    Thank you,
    Rick Bajackson

    I doubt if anyone will be able to provide a definitive answer.

    Recent versions of ChromeOS are capable of running a Linux subsystem.and with such machines it is generally possible to install the Debian version of Moneydance into this subsystem and that is what the article that Maddy pointed you at provides information on. There is no native version of Moneydance for ChromeOS.
