Intuit can KMA. They've dropped the ball so many times for Mac users that they are no longer a player.

Puh-leeze. QuickBooks is a piece of junk. So QuickBooks 2012 for Mac has finally caught up to QuickBooks 1995 for Windows?

QuickBooks for Mac will never, ever, ever, ever hold a candle to the BEST accounting package for the Mac, which is AccountEdge.

And anybody who believes that Intuit actually gives a damn about the Mac platform clearly hasn't been paying attention to how Intuit has treated all their loyal Quicken customers of over 20 years. Intuit is a horrible company that makes horrible products with horrible customer service (straight to you from India!).

I wouldn't give Intuit one more penny of my money if my life depended on it.

Even after all these years, Intuit still doesn't offer multi-currency support, payroll support on the Mac, the ability to create purchase orders from estimates/invoices, parity with the Windows products, cross-platform file compatibility, and much much much more.

I support REAL COMPANIES that make GREAT PRODUCTS that WHOLEHEARTEDLY SUPPORT THE MAC... such as AccountEdge (for business accounting) and iBank (for personal finances).

Sure, AccountEdge and iBank both have their problems too, but at least they CARE about their Mac customers and WANT to continually make the best products for Mac users. I will ONLY be using AccountEdge and iBank from now on.

Intuit has shown their true colors, and they are a disgusting company. Intuit can go to hell.

I still don't see anything about multiple currencies, which is the only reason we still have the Windows version. :(

EDIT: I do see it, in the "Which features, if currently used, would make it difficult to switch from QuickBooks for Windows?" question in the FAQ.

The following features available in QuickBooks for Windows are not currently available in QuickBooks for Mac:

QuickBooks Payroll Services, like Basic, Enhanced and Assisted Payroll
Accountant's Copy
Access to 3rd party applications that integrate to QuickBooks for Windows via the QuickBooks SDK
Multiple currencies
Units of Measure
Price levels
Inventory assemblies
Online bill pay and funds transfer
Industry-specific reports and features
