Has anyone successfully run TT for 2008 using cx? I am running Kubuntu 8.10 on one box, 9.04 on the other. Last year I had to put XP back on my laptop, but I dislike XP so much that I want to keep clear of it, even if it means switching to a different tax program next year. But I already have it this year and hope someone can save me from having to deal with Xp.
I used to have a way to back up QB by letting it create a qbb file. But somethere along the way I lost that method and have had to copy the QBW file to a Linux directory. gzip it and then send it to my online backup service. I tried a link from my home directory to the OBW file in the QB directory but get "too many levels of link."
John did you try the online version of TT? I ran it for my personal and business taxes vs buying the boxed edition.
Worked great without any issues, imported my QB and Quicken files. The only downside is it is not any cheaper than the boxed edition.
I've used the online version of TurboTax for years and it's worked out really well for me. Just grab the latest version of Firefox and you're ready to go, it pulls down your previous year's e-filing too, so that's nice.
Still, I wish they'd make the online version cheaper than the boxed copy. I'd be surprised if they continue making the boxed version in a few years.

CrossOver Forums: the place to discuss running Windows applications on Mac and Linux
We're rebels. We're misfits. But mostly, we're software liberators. And we're very, very good at what we do. We have to be. Lots of developers work with open source, but only a tiny fraction of those are good enough to get software that was designed for one platform to work on another one. We invented CrossOver software - a unique approach to cross-platform compatibility that does not require dual-boot or another OS license. We launched PortJump to help app and game developers broaden their market beyond Windows® users. And we launched ExecMode to help organizations solve really ugly technical challenges.
