Mike,  you'd said, "And with switching GnuCash I am /free at last/ from 
having to use MS Windows for any task I do :-)"

That's a good word,  but I have a problem with Gimp.  It's user friendly 
when it comes to me...   I like how Corel Photo Paint 7 works...   but 
can't get very many Windows things to work with wine.

Thanks for the advice;  I'll take a look see at GnuCash.  :)
