The lilypond-user mailist can answer this in more detail than the bug list, so I have CC'd them. The short answer is that non-programmers can use lilypond without problems, but I do not believe that finale files can be imported to lilypond.

The best route is probably musicXML, but I'm not certain if finale can create musicxml files.

I've been using Finale Notepad, 2000 version, for the past six years or so and am interested in moving from Windows 98 to an open source operating system. I am interested in using Lilypond and am hoping to import my finale notepad files into the Lilypond program for further editing and printing.

Two questions: Since I am not a programmer and cannot fix bugs should I resist the urge to try Lilypond?

Can finale notepad files be easily imported into Lilypad?

Thank you for your help.
