Personally I found Quickbooks to be a total disaster. Then again, I’m a tax accountant so I am used to using “real” accounting programs which quickbooks certainly is NOT. I don’t mind a user-friendly ‘front end”, but the program should have a proper back end complete with GL accounts and codes. That is what MYOB always offered that Quickbooks never did.

Quickbooks bought out MYOB about 10 years ago, then proceeded to kill it off as it was a “competing” product. SO you’re going to be hard pressed to find an old copy of MYOB anywhere. HOWEVER a bright spot on the horizon is that apparently MYOB USA has come to Canada. I’ve heard they will be releasing a new package sometime during 2011. Hopefully, it will be as good as the old MYOB.
