Personal finance & budgeting software.
Quicken 2010 is a solid finance package, especially for novices, but offers little that's substantively new.
Quicken 2008 is a solid finance package and a great choice for novices, but there isn't a compelling reason to upgrade from the 2007 version.
Intuit Quicken 2007 Premier offers a thorough overhaul of its interface, as well as useful new features and conveniences that other financial software products can't match.
Quicken Premier 2006 is a great personal finance program that lacks the killer features to warrant an upgrade from Quicken 2005. Users of Quicken 2004 or earlier versions should make the leap, though.
Quicken's easy setup tools are great for newcomers, but users of Quicken 2004 need not upgrade.
Quicken's new, improved interface makes it Microsoft Money's equal in the financial planning arena. Upgrade if you're using Quicken now, and switch from Money if you're a big-time investor.
If you use desktop Quicken, this mobile companion is a must. Once you train yourself to use it regularly, Pocket Quicken will help you keep up-to-the-minute tabs on your finances.
A supereasy setup and a great design put Quicken 2004 on top, especially for novices, but Quicken 2003 users probably don't need to upgrade.
Once upon a time, Quicken was our favorite money manager, but version 2002 leaves us cold. Don't bother upgrading, and if you want today's most innovative personal finance program, switch to Money.
Quicken 2001's overwhelming interface and poor planning tools belie its age. Unless you're a serious investor or already happy with a previous version of Quicken, you'll want to consider switching to the easier Money.
