Unfortunately, the tax program I was going to use (and have used for several years) required Windows 2003 or later or Mac - not only no Linux option, but it would NOT let me proceed! At least for their on-line version. As it has been a couple of years since I purchased their cds, I don't kinow if that restriction applies there although I don't remember a Linux option then. (Of course I didn't have Linux working then either
I still have a 5.9 installation and just got 6.0 installed. I should have something that I need to print soon and will report back my succes.
Thank you Granny for your suggestions and I will keep them in mind.
