Will they improve the program, lets hope so Quicken 2003 was a downgrade in
my opinion.

Probably just another attempt to get you to pay them for watching their
advertising. I've never gotten used to paying for a product and find it
to be full of ads.

Newsgroups are made up of individuals. And like any bunch of
individuals, there is seldom complete agreement on anything. Some
people like a new version, others prefer the old one.

Actually, to me 2002 was a downgrade.
I finally switched to 2003 for only one reason:
you have the "make new" button for transactions
downloaded from an external source.
The "match" feature was driving me crazy in 2001/2002
and was always wrong.
You know what I'd pay for? A new version that had a substantial number of
bugfixes for existing problems; and/or reinstated some graphing from Q2001 that
they removed in Q2002 in what was probably a misguided effort to streamline the
product (read: remove a couple of perfectly good graphs that I used daily!);
and/or a better (read: sensible) structure to the graphing and reporting
options; and last but not least if the version had true investment tools built
into it. I.e. really good no-nonsense technical analysis tools.

Grrr....

Yes, I can understand this frustration.
I felt the same.
They add a lot of "features" that probably 99% of the
users don't care about and remove the basic ones that
users love!

But those ads... getting on my nerves.

I dumped Q2003 because of the ad's and will not buy Q2004 unless they are gone.

Q2002 still does me just fine, thank you.
Do you have full access to Quicken's online features? I'm thinking
online banking, and stock price updates.

Yes. That is, as much access as I want or need.

Some program features don't support years later than 2002 (e.g., their tax
planner), which is silly.

But as for online features, I can download quotes and do my online banking just
fine. If you're suggesting there's an online feature I "don't know I'm
missing", do tell.

I am not suggesting. I've never skipped a Quicken upgrade before, and
I'm thinking about it.

Which brings up another idea. If I upgrade from Quicken 2003 to
Quicken 2005, what are the odds that I'll get an upgrader's discount
from Intuit?

I _think_ upgrade discounts have always worked from any prior version of the
software.

I can't know authoritatively what policy Quicken will use for upgrades in the
future. But as an inducement to buy their product, it wouldn't make any sense
to not give a discount to someone with Q2003. In fact it would be very
shortsighted on their part.

I don't think a rebate is the same as a discount... but to get the
rebate make sure that you save all the stuff from your new purchase as
well as have significant proof from your old purchase that you bought
that too.

A rebate is different because some people never get around to sending
the rebate stuff in, and a discount theoretically would apply to
everyone.
