My dad uses this on his laptop to manage his financial information and keep track of his money. He won't use anything else besides Quicken. He makes me come over to his house and get his Quicken working and set up, because he swears by it. If my wonderful father's opinion matters to you, I hope that helps.
I upgraded from the 2009 version and was concerned that the improvements in the past 3 years would make it more complicated to use, but I found exactly the opposite and wish I had upgraded earlier in the year.
The software installation was easy after the updates from Quicken were completed. Not having used this application I was able to find the download instructions from my business account to my desktop. I am impressed by the ease and use of this accounting software.
