A year or more back the rumor surfaced that Q would no longer be available for the desktop. The response here, and I imagine communicated to Intuit as well, was "NO WAY". Most users have no problem putting their iTunes library on the cloud but their personal financial data is another matter.

I can understand Intuit would offer the option because it will appeal to a segment of their market but I think it will be many years before we need to worry about losing our desktop program.

BTW, a few months ago I asked a corporate IT guy whose job is support for his company's senior executives to recommend a cloud backup service. His answer was not to trust any of them at this time. Too many risks, both security and operational. He's given me good advice in the past and I respect his opinion.
