Quicken to GnuCash

Before making the jump, a proper research is in place. Here is a collection of resources related to migrating years of data from Quicken to GnuCash (Open Source).
  • Mobile app: GnuCash for Android (link)
  • Multiple currencies
    • Turn on trading accounts
    • Create currency sub-accounts for every expense (! :S)
  • Migrate data
    • Quicken to GnuCash series (link)
(more to come)

Desktop Clock

Finally a decent analog clock for desktop .

Transparency, variety of backgrounds, seconds arm, calendar...

The only missing feature is the ability to have multiple instances or clocks for various time zones.
