I too would love to have a Linux version of Quicken, however, I am not holding my breath. I believe that they will build out the online version before committing resources to a Linux port. From my experience, they certainly have a lot of work to do to stabilize the online version.
I know we cannot change Microsoft’s vision of what we want, ie,THEY know better than we do, but here is an idea vis-à-vis Quicken.I remember when Quicken first came out it ran on DOS, not Windows.While it was not very sophisticated, it had a HUGE advantage overeverything else on the market – it was almost completely bug free.Before abandoning Quicken for DOS, there were several versions andpossibly the most recent would not be too difficult to modify forLinux Terminal. There would be no bank or stock downloads (initially)but the actual managing of personal expenditures would be availableand much less temperamental than [removed].

Using quicken on my mac after a dreadful install. Unresponsive for hours. Installed virtual machine of manjaro on my imac. Laptop already installed. Will the current quicken work with wine? Maybe I try it on my next day off.
Now that TurboTax will not run on Windows-7, Quicken is the only thing that prevents me from switching to Linux. The need to switch to Linux for everything is getting greater and greater.
