Last time I checked gnuCash support the ofx (Open Financial Exchange)
format that both Quicken and MS Money have moved to.  It is an open
standard xml based format.  The problem is that to download an ofx
file from many banks without using the built in features of either
Quicken or MS Money can be a pain.

I swear Power Point is going to be the downfall of higher education in
western society.
