For those of us with more complicated taxes, I have been using Intuit's
turbotax under VMWare using my old win2k package. I like being able to
import from my Quickenbooks accounting package and have it autofill the
relevant fields in the Turbotax program. I also don't like to go out and
store my tax info on the web on someone else's server. I have been using
this solution since the times of WABI using win 3.1 (anyone remember this?).
When VMWare became available, I switched.
