    I hope they got it right

    Right now, I'm hating Intuit. I purchased QuickBooks Pro 5 for Mac solely because I expected an improvement in the integration with Windows QB data (since almost all accountants use Windows QuickBooks). I was shocked to see my abilities to switch between different versions and platforms were even more limited if I transferred my data to version 5 (I had even answered their survey saying that better integration with Windows QB was the only feature that was missing with 4). Anyway, I've stayed on QB 4 and I haven't even installed QuckBooks Pro 5 (which cost almost $200) -- now I see upgrading to 6 is going to cost me a lot more! Basically, I feel ripped off by QB 5, and can't believe it took this long to (supposedly) be able to open a Windows version of QB.

    Right? Please....

    This is intuit, they aren't going to get it 'right'.

    and can't believe it took this long to (supposedly) be able to open a Windows version of QB.

    Sorry again. They didn't add this feature. They've added the ability to import/export data between windows and mac versions. But god forbid let users use one data file for both their Mac and Windows clients. Who's writing this c***, anyway?

    financial institution...

    Don't tell me QB6 for Mac STILL doesn't offer the capability to connect with financial institutions like there has always been with the Windows version!?!?!? Even Quicken on the Mac can do this - why not QB?

    Intuit: if your going to embrace the Mac, EMBRACE it FULLY - your Mac offerings should not be two versions behind the Windows version - it is a slap in the face.

    Switch to MYOB

    You guys should have switched to MYOB two years ago like me... At least they send out a solid upgrade each year...

    not worth it

    i have v5 only because I could drop Classic. This version is so NOT worth it, it isn't even funny. I was a beta tester for version 5, and intuit used NONE of my suggestions, and I doubt they did anything with anyone elses. The only reason I use it over MYOB is because it is still simpler to use, especially where creating estimates and converting them to invoices is concerned. This version just doesn't do that much to make me want to upgrade...

    I'm ticked as well...

    Ever since I forked out all the money for QB 5 Pro for my business, I've been kicking myself. It is so incredibily limited in comparison to the Windows version I'm about to call up Osama to take care of them for me. ;c)
