Re: XP Authentication after June 30?



Mark, I am going to follow your recommendation. It occured to me that many
changes have probably taken place in the five years since I tried Unix
before. Now to find the post with your recomendations again...

Ed, NM2K

Dropping isn't the only scenario. Few years back I was still using
Quicken from time to time. Then one morning I discovered the

policy and mine had reached that date. Simply said it was their way of
saying upgrade or tough luck.

As with my recommendation to Ed start by downloading a copy of PCLinuxOS
2007. Burn and load the Live-CD.

While in live mode go to the package manager and first reload to get a
complete set of updates and the full listing of available software.
Next download Kmymoney2. Check it out. I've been using it ever since
and have never looked back. Yes, you can download and "install"
software while still in live disc mode. Just note that none of it will
be saved when you shut down.

Here's a link so you can check it out beforehand:
http://kmymoney2.sourceforge.net/index-home.html

I haven't heard of that one. I'll check it out, thanks.

Have you tried it yet?

Not yet. It's not yet "top of my list" of things to do!
