    Hello, thanks in advance for any help.

    At the end of this month I will be purchasing a new MBP. I'm switching over from Windows. The only program I'm concerned about 'losing' is Quicken. I know there's Quicken for Mac, but I've heard horror stories about it. I've also heard bad things about parallels and Quicken. I could always install it on my bootcamp, but I use it often and don't want to boot over each time. I've also heard if I was to switch to a mac version, I can't import my windows file which is absolutely unacceptable as I don't want to lose all my data.

    Can anyone give me feedback as to if any of this is true or if I have been mislead? Will I be able to run Quicken 2008?

    Thanks!

    Quicken Financial Life should be released in a few months. You should be fine then.

    Until then, you'll have to use Quicken under Windows through Boot Camp, Parallels, or Fusion.

    Windows runs under Parallels, so basically any Windows program will run on the Mac by running it through Windows.
