Intuit Tool Helps Shift MS Money Data to Quicken

,----[ Quote ]
| Intuit stepped in on Thursday to rescue 
| Microsoft Money users with an updated 
| Microsoft Money Converter tool, allowing users 
| to import their financial history and 
| preferences to Quicken 2010.
| Microsoft officially stopped selling its Money 
| software on June 30, although Microsoft said 
| then that it would support Money's online 
| services until Jan. 31, 2011. In November, 
| Microsoft announced plans to release versions 
| of Money Plus Deluxe and Money Plus Home & 
| Business that will not require online 
| activation, allowing customers to keep Money 
| files and transactional history but will not 
| allow access to online services or premium 
| services.

| was going to let go, but I'm guessing it is.

Are there more layoffs in Microsoft's future?

,----[ Quote ]
| That inaudible clause, according to my notes, was âI donât see any potential
| for us to lower our expenses for the rest of this year.â
| So does all that mumbo-jumbo translate to no more layoffs? Probably â at
| least for the rest of this calendar year. But not definitivelyâ.
