Sorry to say Good-bye to GnuCash

I've been using GC 2.2.9 under XP SP2 for over a year now.  I keep
track of our personal finances and our small business, invoices and
such.  The only issues I've had with GC was in the very beginning I
had a corrupted file two days after I started to use it.  I'm pretty
sure it was due to something I did initially while I was playing,
creating/deleting accounts moving stuff around etc.  Since I've got my
structure setup I've had no issues out of GC.  As far as downloading
transactions I can't do that anyway from most of my account cause they
want to charge me for it.  For me it's just as easy to download the
last months worth of data via the file method.  The other thing with
GC and anything very important, backup, backup, backup.  As sure as
you don't backup one day the next time you open your financial program
you'll have a corrupted file.
