Linux equiv. of M$ Money or Quicken?

Is there a Linux equivalent of M$ Money or Quicken? I'd like to be able to use the Money or Quicken statement downloads from my bank to balance a check register. I currently use M$ Money... MIGHT be able to get it working via WINE, but I'm not too sure that will be successful.

some ideas


There's more out there, and more too if you want to look at non-free stuff.

Thanks guys, I'll check into those when I get home. I don't need an elaborate program, just something to balance the checking account with. Preferrably one that will read M$ Money or Quicken files.

-> Softwares
-> Accounting

The reason I shifted from gnucash is because it requires
double accounting. I use CBT, a simple checkbook tracker.
Most porgrams, if not all, including CBT, will read quicken
files. However, CBT will not handle complex transaction.
[And I haven't try online banking, so I don't know. But
if online banking is important to you, check it out.]
