    Curious though. How does KMyMoney stack up against the other big Qt/KDE based financial program Skrooge, which went KDE5/Qt5 a while back? I heard Skrooge can recognize and track cryptocurrencies. What about KMyMoney?
    Seems like it is not fully ported, at least on Arch Linux the new KMyMoney tries to pull in a phonon-qt4-* backend.

    Update: It might be a packaging issue, if I compile the git version from AUR then there is not such a dependency.

    Well, at least I saw in their start menu they have somehing like:
    Web Browser
    Firefox
    File Manager
    Dolphin
    So people can see first the generic name (what the tool is supposed to do) and then the name its developers gave it (which doesn't matter too much).
    That's pretty well thought in my opinion.

    Skrooge seems nice... Compared to KMyMoney i don't know which is better... Opinions?
    I tried Skrooge as well, but what was missing for my usage was AqBanking and HBCI interface. Without this it was pretty useless to me.

    No wonder Linux on desktop has 1% user share and I can't really recommend it to any friend when a simple "file manager" has 10 different names in 10 distributions.

    I guess you won't recommend Android and its ten zillion different user interfaces (and names) either, but at least there you can't claim it's the reason it has like 80% share of mobile, and like 60% of internet usage share.

    OMG and Apple? they place an "i" in front of all their stuff!!!! HOW USER UNFRIENDLY!!!!

    Because Windows Explorer and Finder are somehow better names... Protip: All names suck, none of them make things user friendly or not as long as they are recognizable as words.

    Or do what the makers of Skrooge did with the K. Clever, invokes the famous miser of money in Dicken's Christmas Carol and still got the K of KDE in there.

    I've been using Moneydance for the past six moths after getting frustrated with not being able to get Quicken 2017 running under Wine or CrossOver. I had been using Quicken since the 1990s. After a bit of adjustment, I am pretty happy with MoneyDance. While it is proprietary it at least is fully supported on Linux (as well as MacOS and Windows.)
