Does anyone know or heard about, if MS-Money will run in Wine, or is there a application out there similiar to Money that runs in Linux ??

(1) Linux counterpart: maybe spreadsheet will work for you, where you can custome design a spreadsheet template to do exactly what you want.

(2) Instead of running "MS money" in wine, try using bochs or qemu. I know that you can get those on your system since I have them installed on mine and qemu will run very difficult to run MSDOS DPMI programs, so it should have no problem running windows or "MS money." However, you will want to use a reasonable package manager, one that will let you see whatever you need to know about what you have installed and what you need to get, for the install (i.e. not yum). I have found a good choice to be smart, which you can find at

With enough work one could make spreadsheets do what M$ Money and Quicken do but even as an ex-accountant I found it far easier to use Quicken than make my own spreadsheets.

Having said that you might want to do a Google for "Quicken on Linux". I did and saw several hits. If you're not giving cash to Microsloth for their other software why pay them for home accounting? Quicken is an Intuit product. There may be free packages out there as well.

I use Moneydance and I like it. They have a Linux version that is easy to install. It is not free but it is cheaper than other financial software plus you get free updates, upgrades, and add ons. I think they even have a free trail version if you want to check it out before you buy.

I am surprised that no one has mentioned GNUCash. Excellent app and very Quicken-like. Allows online banking and excellent record/reporting.
