2006 seems nice...

....and I say this with a certain degree of trepidation after my
experience with '05. I just installed Money '06 since I got it for
free (mail in rebate yet to be sent, but Microsoft has been good about
their rebates) with Tax software.

I chose my desktop to try it out first. I use Money '04 on my laptop
but didn't want to upgrade that just yet. So I just spent about 15-20
minutes with the new version and decided to share my thoughts. Couple
of things that put me off of using 05 have been taken care of in 06.
So, it seems someone is listening. Clutter is reduced and online
updates are controllable. Those two were my biggest complaints with
05. Otherwise, the UI looks usable. I felt comfortable navigating all
the sections and I could do what I used to do in 04 without much
problems.

I have to admit that I do not use portfolio or investment analysis
sections a great deal so YMMV. I use Money 04 for basic account
keeping and tracking mortagage etc and looks like I will upgrade to 06.
I feel a little sad for my trusty old Money 04 but I guess it is time
to say goodbye. :)

How so? What are you finding you can do in M06 you couldn't do in M04?

Couple of small peeves, though.

1. Clutter on the left hand bar is kind of annoying. There should be
a way to switch the left bar off completely. I can block it out
mentally since there is nothing of use there 99% of the time, but it
would better not to be able to see it.

2. Advertisements should be turned off when the setting is checked. I
know that Money is turning into an adware of sorts but it still bothers
me enough to mention it here. Again, I can block them out mentally
but...
