    Aaaah...perfect.

    Received an email from Intuit letting me know that Quick Books 2011 for Mac is not compatible with OS X Lion.

    Their solution? Partition your HD (for the foreseeable future) and run SL there so you can run Quick Books and continue to operate your business. Jeeeze. That company is maddening.

    Thoughts?

    lion lets you run lion iside it (basically, your mac has two osx's open simultaneous, i dont know all the details but it might let you run snow leopard inside lion via that. It might even have a compatibility mode :?

    Virtual Machine SL or send that company down the river, personally I like the latter option

    There is no compatibility mode. I think the other thing you are talking about is using virtualization software like Parallels or VirtualBox to run SL.

    I strongly suggest switching to iBank, rather than stay with Intuit. The fact they still use PowerPC architecture 6 years after Apple announces they're switching to Intel is an insult in and of itself to its Mac customers.

    I don't believe iBank is a business solution, i.e. invoicing, payroll, payables etc. Seems more of a personal fiance solution.

    In spite of being losers, Inuit seems to have come up with a quick solution based on the information I posted up there ^^^.

    Did Intuit say anything about their different versions? Does QB Pro work?

    Ughhh. This is a major headache. Freakin' Quickbooks kept me from switching my office PC's to Macs because I heard horror stories. QB for PC is pretty good, but now I am getting worried.

    Intuit doesn't care about Mac users. I say we shouldn't care either.
