I’ve talked in the past about the fact that the release of Mac OS X 10.7 (Lion) will mark the end of Quicken compatibility on the Mac platform. In the absence of a workable solution from Intuit, your options will be to stick with OS X 10.6, switch to Quicken Essentials for Mac (no thanks!), run Windows on your Mac, or switch to another software package entirely.
Whatever you decide, please be aware that your Quicken 2007 data will become inaccessible the moment you upgrade to Lion. Thus, you need to export your data into an accessible format before making the jump. I’m bringing this up now because Apple has said that Lion will be available sometime in July, and it’s now July…
With that, have a great weekend, and a Happy 4th of July!
