    If you are in the Military or a Government Employee, why have you not went and spent the 119.00 at the PX for Office 11 for the Military, it is the full blown office for Mac. I just don't get it, and there are plenty of programs under the GNU that work just as well if not better than quicken. Upgrade, I know you probably don't want to relearn something, heck, a year ago I was a linux nut, and have switched over to Mac, you learn to adapt or get swept to the wayside.

    Cool, does the outlook/entourage work? I have seen some folks that have problems with it, but they usually are on an enterprise server.

    The real question is why haven't you switched over to iWork.

    Due to my job, everything is done with Microsoft Office, I am a goobermint contractor. :( iwork doesn't play well with power point, tried it, was politely asked not to use it anymore, they went nuts when I started using open office on my linux boxes. Certain programs like pureedge do not work in the apple enviroment, neither does FedLog.
