I just hope that they don't break too many things. And, maybe,
fix some of the things that they 2013 broke (like printing envelopes
in 2013 H&B).

My view is not so much that Money was the choice of some people
instead of Quicken, but that many people found the previous version
good enough and didn't buy the new one because it didn't add much in
the way of significant new features.

That's what keeps me from buying the new version every year. What you
mention about Quicken 2013 may be significant to some people, but
although I bought it this year, to me it's no better than 2012.
