With all the new versions in fifteen years, have you seen any noteworthy improvement at all?

In all honesty, I use few enough of the features of Quicken that if they made sweeping improvements I probably wouldn't notice them. What I do notice is that Intuit doesn't see fit to fix some broken things. e.g. Splits are incorrectly handled; mergers are incorrectly handled; spin-offs are incorrectly handled; transfer a security from one account to another and you lose your holding period; change a company name and every transaction that occurred before the change is changed to the new name. (I bought American Home Products in 1998 and they changed the name to Wyeth in 2002. If I want to look up some information about the company I need to remember the 2002 change or I'll be searching for something that doesn't exist. That's not a big deal but accumulate enough little annoyances and you have a big deal.) Et alia.

<sarcasm>I know I'm unreasonable, wanting things to be fixed instead of being thankful for the annual addition of features I'll never use. That's just the kind of guy I am.</sarcasm>
