Microsoft offers free small-business software
The software giant also lowers pricing for the professional version
By Elizabeth Montalbano, Philadelphia | Tuesday, 31 October, 2006

Microsoft has turned its accounting suite for small businesses into
two separate offerings, one of which users can download for free
starting yesterday.

Office Accounting Express 2007, an updated version of Office Small
Business Accounting 2006, is available here for free, says Rajat
Taneja, a Microsoft general manager for small business applications
and services.

Microsoft also will begin offering a slightly higher-end version of
the software, Office Accounting Professional 2007, from retailers
early next year.

The professional edition of the software has more robust features than
the free version for handling inventory management, budgeting, cash
flow and other tasks mature small businesses require, Taneja says.
Office Accounting Express 2007 is aimed more at small businesses that
are just getting off the ground and need help starting up.

Microsoft introduced Office Small Business Accounting 2006 last
September to help small businesses manage income and expense
accounting. The product costs US$179 (NZ$270), but Microsoft has
lowered the pricing for the professional version to US$149 (NZ$225) in
the 2007 edition, says Taneja.

Microsoft has also expanded the web-based offerings that are available
through the software from two to seven. These are services from
Microsoft partners -- such as eBay's auction and eBay's PayPal payment
services, Verisign security services, Automatic Data Processing's
payroll service and Equifax's credit-check service -- that small
businesses may find useful.

The services cost extra, and range in price depending on the provider
and the service, Taneja says. They are available in both the express
and professional editions of the software.

I hate this abuse of the word "professional" :(

Good grief!  I hope there's a *lot* of documentation in there, because that's 50% bigger than the total disk capacity of the first mainframe I worked
on, which held (as well as the operating system, spooling system, compilers, and so on) the business software to run three companies, including
source code.

Hmmm... Am I turning into a Grumpy Old Man?

Quite!  A former colleague of mine once defined "Professional software" as "that which is too difficult for users to use on their own"!

The very first home computer of mine was an Apple II+, which had a 64KB
memory (you could use only 48KB the rest was occupied by the system). That
was able to use mouse with a Paintbrush like software and my father's
inventory software was running on it just fine. Later on the IIe with 128KB
had a Mac like mouse driven GUI upon the OS. Now a mouse driver is far
bigger than 64KB!

Did you factor in the training the operators received to run this business
software? Writing GUI software for consumer use is a different story.

Documentation is small, for text.  They probably have uncompressed
High Def video of a REAL paperclip animated to give you advice like
"did you know that you can wipe out competition by offering inferior
but free software that appears to duplicate their applications?" (in
several different configurable voices...)

Hmm... never used that accounting software before, but an alternative
might be GNUCash:

http://www.gnucash.org/

It's free, in both senses of the word. :)  And it's internationalized
for many countries.
