The program is called "Quicken", not "Slow-me-down-en"
Financial software is very important -- and not something users appreciate having messed up. Intuit was there early
with a good product. I started using Quicken in 1988 in DOS. I am
about to give up. I've been through about 5 forced upgrades.
Each upgrade wastes my time with a learning curve and file management
and provides no functionality I care about. I was paying bills online
in 1988, and I still am.
The upgrade from .QIF to .QFX made some sense, even if it was annoying.
I've also been using Linux for three years to run my entire life.
Quicken is the ONLY program I really need that doesn't run in Linux
natively. Till now I have used CrossOver office to make Quicken run in Linux. It worked for Quicken 2005, but now that I have been forced to move to Q2008 it does not work.
Even if Intuit does not want to support Linux themselves, they should at least feed the Wine community with advance notice of their strategy so that CrossOver works the day a new Quicken is released.
