Amazon.com Review

With Intuit Quicken 2001 Deluxe, it really is possible to have apaperless home office, as long as you have Internet access--and, of course, youmake sure to file your financial documents in another room of the house.

Intuit's latest release of the popular personal-finance/home-business softwarebreaks new ground in its tighter integration of the Web-based services atQuicken.com, with its hard-drive-based number-crunching software.College-planning calculators, 401(k) advice, and home-purchase calculators allare summoned by a click on a tab in the software--and a swift launch of your Webbrowser.

"So, what," you say? "I can find those financial calculators anywhere online,not just at Quicken.com"? Well, the best aspect of all of this Web-enabling isthe amount of typing that it saves you at the front end. The biggest hurdle tostarting with any of these home-finance programs has been that you've got toinput the data from your bank statements, checkbook, and ATM slips by hand toget any real sense of your finances. Thanks to the broadened online account- access capability of the new Quicken 2001 Deluxe, and an online bank account,you can download all of that information from your bank, and import it to yourQuicken application.

By the same token, you can make transfers and payments over the Internet byusing your Quicken software, or export your stock portfolio information to asecure area of Quicken.com, so as to benefit from online stock updates and otherinvestor information.

Intuit also has worked to make Quicken 2001 Deluxe more cohesive internally--youcan perform global find-and-replace operations, instead of jumping from file tofile, hoping for answers. You can set Quicken to notify you of tax deadlines andupcoming bills, as well as when the software itself is about to need updating.It's also a little easier to set up the program to track those transactions ofyours that are tax-deductible.

This version for Macintosh is not perfect, by any means, although it's closer toits PC counterpart in terms of functionality. Mac users now get preset access tomore banks than in previous versions, but not as many as would make onlinebanking setup a breeze. To take advantage of the new online/offline leveragethat Quicken 2001 Deluxe promises, it's best to have a fast connection to theInternet, and be at peace with the fact that some amount of real-world setupstill is necessary to make this software sing online. --Elizabeth Aoki ...

3-0 out of 5 stars Okay...but could be better.
I have owned this product for quite a while, and this piece of software is okay for the basic consumer who just wants to balance their checkbook. I have yet to explore the other features such as stocks and other stuff, etc. There are some major faults in this program. The program should have a link to TurboTax Deluxe, and the pertinent entries should be able to be communicated to TurboTax and vice versa. Additionally, the interface is a little primitive, even for Mac OS 9. Admittedly, Intuit has a general monopoly in the field of finances, especially for the Macintosh side, and unfortunately, the program does display these faults. There is relatively little attempt in the program to make it easier for Mac users (as Windows users), even despite the software patches. All in all, beggars can't be choosers...and for all its worth, this program is superior in what it does.

1-0 out of 5 stars Shockingly bad
I used Turbo Tax, so I didn't think my transition to Quicken 2001 would be so hard. It has been impossible! There's no walking you through entries like with Turbo Tax. If you don't know what the program wants when it asks for some obscure accounting term, you have to switch to a buggy pdf file for answers, and those answers are useless if you can find them. The program is buggy. There's no way to use anything other than M$ Explorer every time the program wants to take you to a browser. And as expensive as the program is, half of the buttons take you to pages that are trying to sell you more services that should be included. Why should I pay Intuit 10 bucks a month to pay my credit card bills? That service should be included, or be closer to the price of a stamp, which is all it costs now to mail in a check. I feel like I've been slimed.

3-0 out of 5 stars Quicken refund comes through
An update: Intuit has come through with a full refund after my Quicken Deluxe 2001 for Macintosh failed to create any reports (see review below). So, my final review: Customer Service: 5 stars. Product Usefulness for me: 0 stars. Overall Rating: 3 stars.

2-0 out of 5 stars Intuit makes good on rebate ... but serious problems remain
I said I would update my posting if Intuit made good on their rebate offer, and now they have done so. I received a nice letter from Intuit saying they had seen my review at Amazon.com, and that I would be receiving a rebate shortly. The $20 check came today.

BUT -- I've run into some fatal errors in attempting to use my 2001 Deluxe for Macintosh. Essentially, I have been completely unable to produce any kind of a report whatsoever. As you can imagine, after entering months worth of data, being unable to analyze that data in any way leaves the program virtually worthless.

I spent many hours trying to track down the problem. Every time I tried to create a report, the program crashed, and I received a Type 1 error message. I added 128 MG of memory to my G3 (for a total of 160 MG), but still the program crashed. I downloaded the Quicken Deluxe for Macintosh Release 2 update and installed it. Still the program crashed.

If you call to try to speak with a real live person, Intuit will charge you $2.00 per minute. Refusing to throw good money after bad trying to fix their problem, I went to the Help files on the website again, and after several hours I found a Q&A explaining that an Error Type 1 may occur when attempting to create reports if you are using an HP DeskWriter printer driver, version 6.0.4.

Guess what? I've got an HP DeskWriter 6.0.4.

So I tried disabling the driver, but the program still crashed anyway. I finally gave up and spent an entire Saturday retyping in six months of data from my Macintosh into my old Quicken 6 for Windows. Now I'm using my old Quicken program, and I wish I'd never tried to upgrade.

Anyway, I'm giving them an extra star because they did finally come through with the rebate. Now we'll see whether they'll refund the rest of my money.

2-0 out of 5 stars Attitude is everything
I have found that Intuit is not a friendly company. They certainly do not give a rip for their users problems. I think that other products like MS Money or Moneydance would have a more helpful and a friendlier feel from thier company. I say the product is okay to so-so. The company is a giant and its attitude shows its true colors. ... Read more

TaxCut Standard 2002 offers many new features, like nine-year tax preview, Home Office Assistant, Retirement Savings Enhancer, and free H&R Block financial planners. In addition, you still get your favorite standard features such as auto entry and financial data imports.

H&R Block financial planners assist you in determining if your investments support your financial goals and if your asset allocation matches your risk tolerance. You can also create what-if scenarios for future savings. Nine-year tax preview shows you all the ways that the tax legislation of 2001 will affect you now and in the future. Home Office Assistant walks you through a series of questions to see if your home office qualifies for tax purposes. Retirement Savings Enhancer provides ways to increase your tax and retirement savings to ensure you get the most out of your 401(k).

The improved Error Check feature catches mistakes or omissions that could cost you money or flag your return for an IRS audit. Entry Manager tracks where your data originates, guides you to related forms, and itemizes your entries. It also allows you to flag entries as tentative, so you can go back and review them before you finalize your return. The H&R Block tax law assistant helps you understand the implications of changing tax laws, provides information about how the changes affect your taxes, and ensures you get the maximum tax benefit possible under the new laws. Auto entry automatically imports W-2 and 1099 information from participating employers and financial institutions. Auto entry saves you valuable time and prevents costly data entry errors, and makes it easy to deal with multiple W-2s. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Great product, easy to use, helped me get a bigger refund
I don't understand why the average customer review is only 3 stars. I've used this product for 3 years now, and found it very easy to use, efficient, accurate. It's less expensive than Turbo Tax, but just as good.

This year, I tried using a free online service recommended by the IRS to do my taxes. After spending a few hours with it, I realized it lacked the ability to account for money I'd previously paid the IRS toward this year's tax bill. So I did what I should have done in the first place - got the latest TaxCut software and re-did my tax return (in half the time). TaxCut got me a bigger refund.

My only reservation is that TaxCut charges a little more to E-file your return than the online service would have charged. But accounting for the bigger refund, I'm still way ahead.

I'm sure TurboTax would be just as good for most people. But TaxCut costs less and works very, very well.

4-0 out of 5 stars Does what it needs to do
Personally, I think the government should supply us with free programs for tax calculations - it's their complicated rules after all. I'm convinced it would save everyone money by eliminating errors. But until that happens a software program is well worth the investment.

After reading all the negative reviews on TurboTax, I opted for TaxCut this year. I want Intuit to realize that I have no interest in buying software that installs spyware and advertisements on my computer. ...P>TaxCut did try to put Earthlink on my computer, but after a refusal it never tried again. I guess I can live with that.

It was easy to use and almost as straight forward as TurboTax. I had no problems with installation or updating it. The only reason I knocked it down to 4 stars is because the appearance was a little bit distorted. The boxes where data is typed in (e.g W-2 forms) had the numbers not really aligned with the boxes. Also, all the text was in a little box using up maybe 30% of the screen. Most of the time that was fine, but sometimes you had to scroll down to see the remaining data. If you weren't careful, you could miss the fact that there was more to be seen. Not a big problem - but it does leave the possibility someone will miss a box or instructions that way. And generally, it's just not as user-friendly and obvious as it could be. So, it just needs a few tweaks. The important thing is it works and I was done in 1.5 hours.

1-0 out of 5 stars Seriously buggy---may cost me big time
This software has a serious bug that may cost me a great deal of money.

My wife lived in Illinois for a year while I lived most of the year in California. In such a case, it is imperative that we file our Federal returns separately, otherwise Illinois will tax us on the money I earned in California!

TaxCut not only didn't warn us of this, it incorrectly computed the Illinois taxes using the part-year resident form. This was in spite of my having specified that my wife was in Illinois the whole year, and in spite of it being very plainly stated on the Illinois form that under such circumstances, a couple filing jointly could not use the form!

Unfortunately, I allowed TaxCut to e-file my return before I checked the state returns. Now I have to file an amendment.

I was also unable to get any help from TaxCut's customer support to stop the e-filing before it went through.

I'll never use their software again.

4-0 out of 5 stars My first tax-prep software
I can't really compare this software to others, but I can say that it did a pretty good job for me. Just spend about 20 minutes answering questions in the beginning, and it will do most of the rest. My tax return consisted of several jobs for both my wife and I, working in two different states, mutual fund and stock purchases and sales, interest and capital gains income, and a mortgage. I thought this would make my return to complicated for a comuter software, but everything I needed was here. Nad if for some reason you don't like what it does, you can manually change any entry. However, if you manually change entries, you will not be allowed to e-file.
I installed this on my desktop, and again on my laptop to do some work when my wife was working on the desktop. This worked fine. But there is no clear way of letting one computer know what you did on another computer, so multiple installations are for the most part useless.
The one thing I don't like is that it seemed like procrastinators are rewarded for their laziness in that this software gets cheaper the nearer you get to April 15th, to the point where it become free after rebate.

4-0 out of 5 stars Good alternative to Turbotax
I bought Taxcut this tax season because I was not interested in having Intuit's intrusive product activation features placed on my computer. I found Taxcut to be a decent alternative to Turbotax. (Is there any reason, though, why we have to put up with H&R Block putting Earthlink advertising on my computer?) ... Read more

2-0 out of 5 stars Theres better out there
I got this with high hopes and...well, I think I set my hopes too high. Maybe I expected too much.

I have only been getting into digital image editing in the past two years and this was the place I had picked to start from. I have a digital camera and scanner and use them both to get images to my computer and had hoped that this software would give me a great deal of choices in dealing with those images. Not so.

For one, the cloning tool is incredibly difficult to use. It is not intuitive (nothing in this program is) and often you have a hard time understanding where you are cloning from. The menu buttons with this tool, as with others, are set so far out of the way that they are not easily found (bottom left corner whereas the tool options are in the top left- also that button is very much the same color as the background, making it difficult to spot). I do a great deal of air-brush type effects in my pictures and it took me 1.5 hours to brush out one thing in a picture with this software. In comparision I used a different program (PSP7) to do something similar in ten minutes.

The rest of the options are equally as riddled with problems. Some of the filters and things that can be applied to the picture don't seem to work as well as other programs I have seen. The standard effects often come out buggy or misapplied. I have seen the Sepia filter skew an image a few times, for instance. The Dell imaging suite offers more choices and better results in that area. The warp tool is rigid and there is no chance of doing anything artistic or comical with it (no oversizing mouths like caricutures here).

The overlay function is either a)non-existant or b)so hard to find that I just didn't see it. I was trying to meld two pictures together and could get no results with either trimming the photo to try and fit or making it transparent to set it over the other.

It does capture images well though. It fixes red-eye nicely too.

For those who do not need a high-powered tool, this is perhaps your best bet. For those who want something that will allow them freedom to do with their photos as they wish, I would suggest something more powerful. The up in price is worth it.

5-0 out of 5 stars Great results for novice users
Photo Explosion is a very easy to use, yet powerful, photo editing program. I use this program more than any of my higher cost photo editing software. It's easy to change the intensity, tone and color saturation of your digital pictures as well as apply a wide variety of fades to the edges of your pictures.

I've had several people comment that pictures that were edited with this program look better than photos that they had taken at professional studios. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Great Product for Personal Finances
I purchased Money 2002 Deluxe as an upgrade to the existing version I was using - Money 2001 Deluxe. The features in the 2002 version that was most helpful to me includes:
1. Being able to undo an action (e.g. especially for those times when you delete a transaction in error)
2. Having more printing options, especially in the "forecast" cash flow section. I've always found the older version had limited printing capabilities.
3. Being able to flag transactions for later follow-up or making notes, similar to to-do action items.
4. The home page is more customizable, so I could "see" at a glance my spending habits, to-do actions, cash flow, etc.
5. The Bills and Deposits section is much more improved - though it takes a bit of getting used to in the beginning.

The feature I didn't like is Microsoft integrating the money file with a Passport account. While it adds another level of security, i.e. having a password to access the money file, I think it is just Microsoft's way of pushing their Passport technology. Fortunately, Money can be used offline - so it's neither here nor there regarding the passport option. All in all, I think it's a great product.

5-0 out of 5 stars The Best Software I Own
I just balanced my checking account in 3 minutes so I felt compelled to put up a review proclaiming how great MS Money is.

First off, I was shocked to see that the overall rating for Money is so low. I tried to use Quicken Deluxe 2001 a while back and aside from hating the UI I just never felt that it worked very well. Things like balancing my account and paying bills online were awkward and I eventually gave up.

Money, on the other hand, has a beautiful, intuitive UI, makes balancing my accounts simple and sometimes automatic, and provides incredibly smooth online integration. The epay feature lets me pay all of my bills through money and they automatically get entered into my credit union's online bill pay system. Anytime something goes wrong, for example if I enter a date that's too early or if I haven't entered an address to send the bill, Money handles it smoothly.

I should note that my experience with MS Money is limited to entering and categorizing all of my transactions, electronic bill pay, and balancing my accounts so I can't comment on any of the reporting or budgeting features.

I noticed that a few of the negative reviews are from people that say they have a hard time managing their finances and it's not surprising these people would be let down. Money can't do everything for you and I spend a significant amount of time making sure everything is kept up to date. However, if you are willing to invest time to track your finances Money is definitely an application you should consider.

1-0 out of 5 stars Worse than you think
Being a MS Money user for the last seven years, I thought that the new version will improve my ability to track my personal finances, just as the previous versions did. Instead, I had to cope with the disappearance of my budget and, worst of all, an annoying Passport log in, which seems to have a serious security issue. Two days after installation and the first Passport log-in, I had two on-line charges on a credit card I've never used on the Internet!!!

Fortunately, I found my Money 2000 file backed up and restored normality by removing this threat from my system.

2-0 out of 5 stars More bugs than Windows XP.
Bought this when it first came out to replace Quicken (too slow).
More fool me - ghastly interface. More bugs than an ant hill and now it won't let me edit or view downloaded info and I've now got 78 items on one account needing 'previewing'.

I'd move the file back to Quicken but guess MS Money has now ballsed up my accounts so badly I'd be better off starting again.

1-0 out of 5 stars Don't waste your money
The only major thing I learned about money from Money 2002 Deluxe is that buying it is a waste of money. It is user unfriendly, has a confusing layout and the "automatic" retrieval of information from the internet worked for less than half the accounts I put in the software.
Another "fun" thing was that the first time I set up all my accounts, budget etc., the Money file was saved to a folder on the LAN network - even though I was not connected to it at the time. I should have realized this, of course, but I didn't. Next time I tried to access the file it was not found, neither on the network, nor on the hard drive.
Money 2002 Deluxe is good for two things:
Cardio exercise - because it will definitely raise your blood pressure and heart rate whenever you use it, and
It will make your wallet a lighter and more comfortable fit in your pocket.. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Great for College Students
ENCARTA: In college, I can't use an encyclopedia as a source on a paper. However, I can look things up with the encyclopedia, so I have some clue about the topic and can determine where I should look to future research the topic.

MONEY: This is really good for keeping track of all of my bills (tuition, books, car payments, insurance, credit cards, etc.) This program takes a little bit to get used to and you have to keep using it to see how effective it is, but it helps make managing money a little bit easier.

PICTURE IT! PHOTO: I have a program that came with my scanner that does a pretty good job. When I want to add the 'little extras' to graphics, I use this program. I can create effects with this program.

5-0 out of 5 stars "No Longer a Skeptic"
At first I was reluctant to purchase this software (could be I was intimidated by the newness and unfamiliarity?). The installation was quite simple - just sit back and follow the simple instructions. I have used other software prior to Microsoft Personal Collection 2001 somewhat similar but not as sophisicated. I thoroughly enjoy using this software. I find me challenging myself to produce more projects, with the gratifiation that I they will be presented in a professional and neat format. I find this software to be very user friendly. ... Read more

1-0 out of 5 stars Will power is buggy
I purchased this product with the expectation that it would at least function properly. Unfortunately, the product has some serious bugs. I have installed, uninstalled, and reinstalled the product on my Mac (G4 runnig OSX Panter) to no avail. If all you want to do is create a power of attorney then this is the product for you. Otherwise, spend your money elsewhere.

1-0 out of 5 stars Find a different program instead!
I thought the Kliplinger Will program would be as functional as their TaxCut software, but clearly this program falls short. The instructions were bad, and what drove me the MOST crazy was that there was no delete feature (if you mistakenly list your mutual fund under a savings account, for example, you can't just delete or recatogorize the entry).

When I printed my V-E-R-Y simple will, the program managed to spit out 45 pages of lawyer-speak. What a waste of paper.

I can't return this dog fast enough. Thankfully Kiplinger allows a 60 day period for a full refund. I'm going to try the Quicken program instead.

Product had an error when entering the data. Called technical support and explained the error condition and even the cause. They seemed to have no interest in attempting to correct the problem. After a few attempts they did finally refund my money so I have to give them credit for that. ... Read more

2-0 out of 5 stars Didn't Meet My Needs
I bought AnyTime Deluxe 8.0 to meet two needs: To obtain printouts of address book and daily calender for my DayTimer planner and to synchronize this information with my Palm Pilot.

It was little things that bothered me about the printout capability. Although the program added lines to cut paper for reduced size used in planners, the size for a standard planner is not 8½x5½ as it should be, but rather 8x5. Also, there is no easy way of making double sided printouts using the program - you need either a printer capable of double-sided printing or the patience to develop your own process.

I was totally frustrated with the synchronization capabilities of AnyTime Deluxe. Not all contact fields (phone numbers, e-mail, fax, etc) in the Palm Pilot were transferred to AnyTime. This was totally confusing, since the mapping rules with the program showed them to be properly mapped. For contact information, the Palm has pull down lists for defining type of contact (home phone, business phone, etc.). This info is not transferred into AnyTime Deluxe. Rather, there are its own pull down menus. When you use these pull-down list and sync with the Palm, the description is added to the phone number. (Example, if phone number in Palm is "555-1234" and you add description "Business Fax" in AnyTime and resync, phone number in Palm is "Business Fax 555-1234", using up precious display space in Palm lists.) Most frustrating, on several occasions when I changed info in my Palm and resynced, the synchronization program tried to delete all records in my Palm.

Because of the frustrations with syncing, I uninstalled AnyTime. The program removed cleanly, but the synchronization conduit did not. It left its conduit in Palm's HotSync manager and failed to reactivate the conduits to Palm's desktop program. I had to uninstall and reinstall the Palm software and all other conduits I use to get back to where I was before trying AnyTime.

My advice: If you use a Palm PDA, don't use AnyTime Deluxe.

5-0 out of 5 stars I like AnyTime Deluxe
I like AnyTime Deluxe. I tried a bunch of other programs - different daily planners - and this one just seemed to be better. AnyTime has a feature that sends out reminders at different times, like every 3 or 4 days, or the last Friday of the month. The other calendar systems I've tried didn't have that many variables in the reminders. I've been using AnyTime for over 3 years, and would recommend it to anyone interested in staying organized!

4-0 out of 5 stars Great Networked Calendar
We have owned this product in Versions 7 and 9 for our law office for several years. If you need for more than one user to access the program simultaneously, as we do in the office, the program networks seamlessly. You could pay a fortune for a multi-user calendar like this from other vendors. If you have more than two users needing access, you can buy a license. I have seen many complaints in these reviews about technical support; I have e-mailed a couple of times and received a thorough response within 24 hours. The interface for the calendar and address book is easy to use. I highly recommend the program because of features, ease of use, and price.

1-0 out of 5 stars Do not buy if you want support
Anytime Deluxe 9.0 sounds good for the money. Mine quit working on WinXP after 2 days, and tech support did not reply to my complaint for over a week, when I was given the address to their FAQ page. It contained no helpful information. After calling them, the tech support person admitted there was a problem, and had me modify my registry. The software ran for about 2-3 days, and then stopped working again. I have called and written emails and tech support has not responded in over a week. Even at its best, the software is mediocre - so save your money and buy some software that works and that the company will support.

1-0 out of 5 stars Uncooperative and Annoying
I bought Anytime because I already had version 2.0. I liked the earlier version, but many of the things the older version had were either missing or less user friendly in 8.0. I couldn't load the files from version 2.0 directly into the new, (fortunately the old computer is still running so I could manually copy one to the other.) The entry process had a lot of unecessary steps which slowed down the process. Version 2.0 reminds you of missed date entries, the new one doesn't.

The version 8.0 has a lot of bells and whistles, like fax/cell/watts numbers, direct connection to e-mail, and a few others. The technical assist to Anytime is non-existant, either by 3 no-responce e-mails or 45 minutes on the phone. I'd stick with version 2.0 if you can load it into your computer, otherwise stick with Outlook. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Upgrade from 2002 - Maybe, Maybe Not
This is one of the most "usable" MS products out there. Complain all you want about their business practices, licensing policies or whatever, someone on the Money team really knows how to design a useful tool and an intelligible UI at the same time.

It's hard to say your really excited about an upcoming software release and still keep a straight face. Still, I couldn't wait to pop up the hood and have a look at Money 2003. Perhaps it's a case of expecting a really great product to be somehow greatly better, but I was disapointed to find more or less the same thing.

One improvement I noticed is better reconciliation of imported statements - something that still remains a little off. Despite this and a coule other positive tweaks here and there, I'd wait to upgrade to v2003 if you're anticipating something "greatly better".

On the other hand, if you really want to keep up with the Gates's, or you can't resist the rebate (both reasons I fell prey to), then by all means have at it. This is a great product from someone who really know what they're doing.

* Note: I don't use Money's (MSN) online services, so this review only applies to the desktop app.

1-0 out of 5 stars I hate this version!!!
I have been using Microsoft Money for many years and been pleased. I made the biggest mistake by upgrading to 2003. I had never bounced a check until now. It's register keeping is very confusing. It enters the electronic payments with a date of several days before it is due and it is very hard to tell how much money you actually have in the bank without calling and verifying with the bank. I am seriously considering switching to another software such as Quicken, since I can't go back to the previous version of Money.

5-0 out of 5 stars Excellent Tool to Manage your finance
This is an excellent tool to manage all your finances. Provides with all sorts of reports, Planners etc.

I had a problem though, i couldn't synchronize with MSN Money as promised. Microsoft suggested so many solutions, but nothing works. I couldn't sign-in to .Net Passport from Money 2003

3-0 out of 5 stars Awesome... when it works...
I used an old version of the product, but tried to do too much too fast. On this version I started with very basic functionality and added as I felt comfortable with whatever I had just added. My wife and I are both using the software on different computers and on the same money file. We never use the software at the same time. I also have it synchronized on my handheld. Sound like a complex configuration? Maybe... but this way she has access to balances and can do entry at home, I can check balances and do entry in my Dell Axim, as well as on my desktop at home.

Unfortunately... the file went corrupt or something. Wouldn't open because "this file wasn't closed properly", and it couldn't fix itself. When I restored the backup, then synced my handheld the transactions got jumbled about with the payee's and amounts getting totally mixed up. I gave up and started over. Very annoying.

3-0 out of 5 stars Fine software except for one thing.
Overall I'm pleased with my purchase of Money Standard 2003. It's a very useful tool. The account register allows for categorization of all transactions, which produces interesting reports on how all your money was spent and the bills section makes sure you won't forget to pay those many bills on time. However, if you read the fine print on the bottom of the box you'll notice that it says that portfolio quotes downloading functionality and the ability to synchronize your data with MSN Money expire 1 year from first use of Microsoft Money Standard or September 1, 2004, whichever is earliest. Now what is the point of that?! It sounds like part of the software becomes useless after a year. But since I will have gotten it for free after rebates (not counting the time value of money), I suppose I can't complain too much. ... Read more
