Unhappy Software for Linux

Hello people!
I have been running Linux RH 7.3 for a short time now, and been pretty happy with it.
Do you know of any software in the type of Quicken/MS Money that I can get to install?
These are personal finance/accounting/checkbook balancing software. I use it to try to keep up with all the damage that my wife does to my wallet.
If anybody knows of a good one, could you please post the name and company so I can get a copy.

There is a program like that for Linux called GnuCash. I do not know much about it and have never used it.

Here is another possibility, I purchased Crossover Office for about $60 and it allows me to run a few Windows Programs under Linux. Crossover Office is based on Wine. Using Crossover Office I installed the Windows version of Quicken 2002 Deleux. The CodeWeavers web page gives Quicken a silver medal instead of a gold medal for how it runs under Crossover Office.

I have Quicken 2002 installed under Red Hat 9.0 and when I select it from the menu it does open and run. I have not yet used it further to see how well it works. In the past I used an earlier version of Crossover Office with Red Hat 7.3. The older version of Crossover Office worked but the latest version seems to run the Windows installation programs much more smoothly. Even the new version will only work well with a limited selection of Windows programs and only certain versions of those.
