As a longtime (15+ years) Microsoft Money user, I'm sorry to see the product be discontinued. Online services were officially sunset at end of January which makes the product worthless for tracking investment performance. I can honestly say that Microsoft Money was the application that I used the most on my home PC and was an invaluable tool to track and manage home finances. In addition to providing a dashboard view of my entire portfolio, Money provided powerful tools and reports to track my financial goals.
With Microsoft Money gone, I needed a replacement. I signed up for Mint about a year ago in anticipation of the sunset of Microsoft Money. While the price is right (free!) Mint still can't do basic arithmetic and compute cost basis correctly. The data is there - but Mint can't add which makes it worthless to track investments. I needed to look at other tools.
Next, I turned to Quicken which, like Mint, is owned by Intuit. I purchased a copy of Quicken Premier online from Amazon for $53. I was pleasantly surprised (ok, shocked) that Quicken was able to import my 165MB Microsoft Money file with 15+ years of data in a little more than 5 minutes. Yes, I have some work to organize and clean it up but the data is there - no small feat. While I just started using Quicken, my initial impressions are that it is less polished and less sophisticated than Microsoft Money. That said, I've only been using it a day so more hands on experience is needed. I'll be blogging my impressions I gain more experience.
Update 8 June 2011: I've been using Quicken Premier with good success. While not as polished as Microsoft Money, it has most of the features I need. I use it mostly to view a snapshot of my net worth and keep track of investment performance. However, I wish there was a feature like Microsoft Money to show the day's top gainers and laggards as well as market data (e.g. DJIA).
