"I'm not a fan of any software brought to us by the company that brought us the talking paper clip..."
That ain't the half of it. MS bought up some of the really nice accounting software companies like Great Plains and Solomon, then set a "drop dead" date for existing users. You either migrated up to their new, improved, and much more expensive product or got dropped from support. These were accounting packages that ran in the $6k-$12k range. Last I checked I couldn't even figure out what the equivalent system from MS would cost as the descriptions and modules made little sense to me.
For a lot of small businesses, a manual system of journals and a general ledger works fine. 'Course, you have to know a debit from a credit in order to make it work.
