    Sick of underhanded tactics of Microsoft. Would like to install another OS that supports QuickBooks, and it's associated hardware (cash register drawer, CC scanner, raster printer for CC reciept)
    Anyone have any experience setting this up?

    QuickBooks only runs on Windows and Mac. You will have the biggest issue with the drivers.

    Microsoft has announced they will start bundling all of their updates together so even if you have Windows 7 or 8, you will need to install the telemetry updates in order to get anything from them. So, the privacy concerns may be there with Windows 7 and 8 unless you completely disable Automatic Updates.

    Try to contact any of the linux prodject dev.'s their nanes are listed everywhere. Maybe but a little dev cash and you could have your own product to sell. I know someone who got a dev to build a card reader a couple of years age. Remember QBooks is just a database program. I wrote a accounting program years ago using Open Office, but a relational db program works better. My associates use excel for their bookeeping program. Just remember it's just a database program and can be written in any program language to suit any OS.
