MSMoney did not go away. Instead it became free and unsupported. It works rather well for all this. I doubt you are getting much support for Quicken from Intuit anyways, so why pay for it?

I made no contributions and no withdrawals during 2010

My total gain for my retirement money was 9.9%

I had 42% of my money in stocks which earned a 20% return
I had 33% of my money in a CD earning 6%
I had 25% of my money in cash which effectively earned nothing.

(note: The reason I had so much in "cash" was because I had earned such a good return in 2009 that I wanted to play it safe. This percentage will decline in 2011)

using an 8.5% withdrawal rate until SS kicks in

Used my own spreadsheet and formulas and I came up with 13.9%. Still contributing to 401k and IRA at max, so subtracting that I came up with 11.2%... 60E/35B/5C

12.3% on 60/40 with some major consolidating during the year. I'm fairly happy with that considering where we've been the past few years.

Wherever you go, there you are.
(In other words, no whining!)
