1.0 out of 5 stars Just Say No, November 19, 2011
This review is from: Quicken Home & Business 2012 [OLD VERSION] (Software)
I've been using Quicken since the mid 90s. I upgrade every 2 years. I upgraded to 2012. In less than 24 hours I uninstalled and went back to 2010. Why?

All the good parts of Quicken disappeared and all the bad and frustrating parts remained and were expanded upon. It's ridiculously full of useless graphs and trying to drill down to what makes up those graphs is cumbersome when it actually works. The entire budget section has been totally revamped into an unrecognizable mess with absolutely no ability to customize the screen into one that actually contains some useful information rather than the lines and lines and liens of red and green bars. In the middle of my dismay, I get messages from quicken saying the date has changed and quicken needs to restarted...huh??? Drill downs that should work don't. It saved my reports but I can no longer see what makes up the numbers.

This release is so bad, and my confidence is so shaken with Intuit's chosen path for "improving" this program, I'm not sure when I'll upgrade again, if ever. I did not see one useful change to this program that warranted my keeping 2012 installed. Cost me $85...wish I'd not trusted my upgrade policy and read some reviews before buying. Don't make the same mistake.

Just say no.

I'd like to not upgrade but they are forcing me to in order to allow me to download stock quotes. I have 2009. What choice do I have?! They are making me buy this when I don't want to! Any options?
