I played with both and found MoneyDance far superior. there are two
variants for Linux - with or without Java. I would suggest the version
that includes Java since it is bundled and you should not have to do
anything more with it. Download the file to the folder where you want
to run it - say $HOME/moneydance. In the command line cd to that
directory and then run the tar xzf moneydance*tar.gz file. You could
use their installer as well - they have the link & instructions online -
I can help offline if you need it....
One advantage to Moneydance is you pay once but seem to get perpetual
support and their support is fantastic. I lost my system (my mistake,
needed and got the license key on a Sunday!
