Perhaps, but what's the point of trying to run a 15-year-old program?? Makes about as much sense as reverting to Windows 3.1.

Primarily because it does everything that is expected of it perfectly. Switching any other system would be time consuming, prone to error and unnecessary.

This article from a UK newspaper may tell you more.

The withdrawal of Money and Quicken from the UK market has been a big problem for many users, and there does seem to be a dearth of alternatives. For what it’s worth I’m still using Quicken 2000 for my relatively modest bookkeeping needs, and it runs on Windows 7 in Compatibility mode, though some of the more advanced features no longer work. The problem is that once you have got used to an application like Money and Quicken, transferring your accounts and learning to use new software can be an uphill struggle, moreover none of them have all of the features of the older programs, or the same kind of support for UK banks and investments.

Withdrawn from the UK market?? Why not buy it from Amazon or some other place on the internet??

Because, as I indicated above the current/later versions do not support UK requirements. eg downloading UK Share prices.
Further, it's not free on Amazon.
