The Demise of Microsoft Money (1991-2009)

According to the Official Microsoft Money website [ HERE ], Microsoft Money Plus will not be available for purchase after June 30, 2009.  Microsoft Money, introduced in 1991 (for $69.95), has been Microsoft’s mainstay personal finance software. Microsoft cited the reasoning behind the discontinuation of Money is that consumer needs for managing personal finances is being met by the full service options that are now available through the banks and brokerage firms.

    No surprise here. This product was MS’s attempt to ‘compete’ with Quicken/Quick Books by doing the exact same thing at the same price…
    To use a little Internet lingo, that idea = FAIL.

    As a tech, I look at a lot of machines, and I cannot recall ever seeing it installed.

    I use to use money 2000 many moons ago. It served a purpose then, but now I can download my info from my banks website and do all the same stuff for free. So why would you need it now??!! It took Microsoft a long time to figure this out as usually.

    You are so right! I guess MS kept this going as result of numerous users that didn’t know better.

    Thanks for visiting “Cappydawg”…

    Admit it Quicken kicked MS Money’s @$#. I used it for over a decade and it was a good product. Time marches on I guess.
