I don't remember when I first started using Quicken to manage household finances. It probably was 1993 or so; I remember seeing someone else in South Bend trying it and deciding that it would be better than what we were currently trying to use.

When I moved from PC to Mac after my divorce, I got Quicken for the Mac -- even though it was already two years out of date. Quicken was promising a new Mac-centric Quicken, and I wanted to encourage them, so I spent the money.

Quicken Essentials was the project they had promised. Boy, is it a bitter disappointment! There's no support for investment transactions, and there's no way to export your financial data in a "normal" way that other programs understand. I think they have an export format that goes to Quicken for Windows, but why would I do that? 

Today, I am trying to end my frustration by starting to use a new program for household accounting, one that it Mac-centric. I fear losing track of some essential details, but I have to try.

I would have tried counseling with Intuit if they had shown any interest, but they took me for granted.

Their loss more than mine.
