But most of thelinks are returning error 404.
Also the system requirements list Windows only. Wil it work on Mint?
Any nother OSS alternatives like Ace Money etc. I need for just personal accounting.
Try GFP, GnuCash, jGnash, or KMyMoney. Personally, as a former quicken user I just started using the KMyMoney (Which is only relevant to you if you are running a Mint KDE CE version... but I hear the others are fine as well).
There are also online financial applications (OS indifferent) making inroads quickly. Personally, I just don't like the idea of my financial data being held out there in the ether... but that's just me. Here is a link of several online financial options:http://financialsoft.about.com/od/morefinancialsoftware/tp/Online_Software_List.htm
Finally, here is the argument for why some claim that online financial solutions are actually better than their fat-client counterparts (which admittedly I found somewhat interesting):http://financialsoft.about.com/od/onlinesoftware/ss/OnlineSoftSecur.htm
I'm sure I'm not the only one this has happened to, but I discovered one of the online financial solutions accidentally by inadvertently just typing "Mint" in Firefox's address bar
- of course I meant
to be typing http://www.linuxmint.com
As a final note on this topic, my friend recently switched to Mint but simply could not (read: too lazy to) learn a new financial application, so I set up his Peachtree 2003 system on Wine and it runs perfectly fine.
