Quicken’s Compatibility With Lion

Matt Henderson:

You see, it’s not our fault. It’s that blasted Apple! They’re pulling Rosetta right out from under us, just like they did with the floppy drive! Nearly a decade just wasn’t enough time to get our software updated. So blame them!

It’s really more like 5–6 years, but the point stands. Of course, Intuit is not the only company to replace an important work product with a new one that’s missing features and can’t read the old file format. For personal financial software, I recommend MoneyWell. For video, at least Apple is throwing Final Cut Pro 7 users a bone in the form of Lion compatibility.
