I've been using personal financial software for 20 years, quicken for most of that time. For almost that entire time I've entered every purchase I've made, obsessively. At first it was because my budget was so tight as a grad student, that it was necessary to keep from overdrawing my accounts, and more recently as a way to stay on top of my financial successes and failures in my investment portfolio and plan for retirement and my kids college funds. I've been frustrated with Intuit for some time. Quicken has lagged in development with bugs going unfixed over multiple releases. Intuit's use of a boot sector modifying scheme several years ago stopped me from using turbotax but I continued to use Quicken because there was no easy and equal substitute. I then bought my first Mac about 4 years ago and switched all my software except quicken to Mac native apps, and waited (im)patiently for the new Mac version. When it came, and I saw how bad it was, I was greatly disappointed. The last straw for me was being forced to upgrade to a new version of quicken (I was using QFW 2007) this year. I spent hours looking at alternatives, but there was nothing that would offer me the range of features quicken had, with an easy and full import of my large quicken database with all my accounts and banking info. I didn't want to spend hours/days trying to get it to work (which is why I had kept using quicken for as long as I did). So 4 weeks ago I quit doing quicken. I quit entering my transactions, I quit tracking my investments. I set up auto bill pay on my bank's website. And the world has continued to spin on. This posting has probably little meaning to most of you, so I apologize if I've wasted your time. But for me, after 20 years of spending a lot of my time with Intuit, I feel like I've walked away at the end of a bad divorce. I'm free. I'm still investing, but don't pay as much attention. It's easy to pore too much over quicken graphs and reports. I still discipline my spending, but after 20 years of watching it, I know what I'm doing. I used to spend at least an hour or two every week sitting in front of Quicken and entering all my receipts, and now that time is mine to spend with my family. Don't let the door hit you on the ass on the way out, Intuit.
