I agree with this, although I think the bit about honoring customer feedback sounds like PR spin. I am not suggesting that Microsoft doesn't try to honor it's customer base, but I think the reality is that if Money Plus was profitable, it would not "take a year off" or be otherwise have such a shaky future. I suspect that Microsoft will either abandon the personal finance software market or Microsoft is moving to an online platform for personal finance software, possibly tied in with the MSN Money site.
If you purchased Money Plus in the last year, I would expect Microsoft to honor the Microsoft Money Online Services Policy. The online services policy specific to Money Plus says that online services will remain active in Microsoft Money Plus for two years from your activation of Microsoft Money Plus. So, Money Plus isn't dead at this point.
