What is the real future of Quicken for Mac?
While Aaron Forth's mea culpa to Mac users sounds nice, the company has a history of offering Mac users a sub-standard experience. Like many Quicken for Mac users, I had to migrate all my data to iBank, which is no small task. iBank 4 has many advantages over Quicken although it is far from perfect, especially in the area of reporting. But iBank is committed to the Mac platform where Quicken is clearly not (so far). The previous Quicken versions were always designed to be less capable than their Windows cousins, a reflection of Intuit's attitude toward either Apple and/or Mac users. So now, out of the blue, comes an email promising a new future for Mac users, on the heels of emails notifying us that Intuit is ceasing support for Mac Lion users. I'm interested to know what Intuit plans to win Mac users back? Considering the amount of time/effort it takes to migrate between software platforms, there is zero chance I'll switch back to a 2007 version that's "upgraded" to work on Lion. If there's a free upgrade to a far more capable, current version, then maybe. What are the specifics of Intuit's plan?
