So I started to switch from free open source GnuCash, which sorta worked but didn’t have any of the budgeting features I wanted to Quicken 2006, which was included with my new iMac.
It has come to my attention that Quicken uses completely custom GUI widgets, although they are designed to mimic the Aqua look-and-feel. The scroll wheel doesn’t work the way it should in list views, things are drawn in weird places, double-clicking .qfx or .qif files doesn’t call the importer (Quicken tries to open them as Quicken data files), there’s this wacky custom tree view for managing categories that lets you drag categories under subcategories but doesn’t let you drag a subcategory out into a category… I could go on.
It’s almost as if someone took a Windows application and rewrote the GUI code… oh wait, that’s probably exactly what Intuit did! Ugh.
EDIT: I can’t believe I never noticed that the CDDB import of Thornhill spelled “Independence” wrong. Fixed now.
