Quicken 2004 Mac early impressions

Just installed Quicken 2004 Mac. It loads a little faster but after it
is loaded, it is hard to tell that it is a new version;
EXCEPT: 1. Current quotes didn't carry over, had to re-download.
2. Why did they put in a Customize choice in the Portfolio?
Anything changed is lost when the program is quit.
3. Some securities quotes dont download now.
4. The IDIOTIC instructions and procedure that I had to go
through to "ensure these transactions are properly converted to Quicken
2004" I thought that the idea of Quicken was to take that tedium away,
not add it.
5. Register windows seem to like Quicken's idea of size, not
mine. If I resize my primary checking account window and leave it open
for the next time, it is back to a small size when I reopen Quicken.

Haven't tried any online work yet.

My advice would be to save your money and see if by Revision 3 any of
these quirks is fixed. (Judging from prior years most wont be.)

I don't have this problem -- running on 10.2.6 on a G4 Powerbook. All
register windows are staying the size I leave them.

But I did have plenty of installation problems. Grr....
