I agree that the Mac Quicken product has entrenched itself. The latest upgrade which I did purchase, has better colors for reports, and .Mac backup. Most of the larger features are available via the web site. Often you have to key in your info then get your report. Later you have to key in the same info again and again. There is no option to keep this data local and then at least upload the files for the web site to work with.

This version appears that it is better than the Q2005, after the updates. I have had to complete the 3 updates. I am running Tiger.

One of the great features that I see about the product is to take pictures for your home inventory integrate them with iPhoto. The product with out a doubt could be improved and strengthened. Part of the issue that I see is that Quicken on the PC is competing with M$ Money. The only competition that Quicken on the Mac has is MoneyDance, and a Open Source project. The open source program GnuCash has the capacity of using other money types than US dollars.

My guess is that there are no real competitors for the Mac product in their eyes. I have been using Quicken on the Mac for several years. I also end up developing some spreadsheets in M$ Excel for my investments.
