Quicken 2012 is the most popular software for W95, W98, Me, NT, W2K, XP, W2003, Vista, W2008, W7-32, W7-64, W8-32, W8-64, W2012, W10-32 and W10-64
and the Mac for balancing your chequebook and doing personal finances. There are now
two versions of it:

Unbelievable as it sounds, its maker, Intuit, has convinced a great many banks, credit unions
and credit card companies to interface directly to it electronically over the
Internet. You have an up to the minute statement in your machine at the click of a
mouse. Setting up is a snap. For MasterCard, I did it from my computer in about 2

The only major fault I find is date formats.Quicken offers no way to extend the
lame operating system date configuration options you set in Start ⇒ Start ⇒ Settings Control Panel ⇒ Regional Setting
⇒ Date. I would be nice if you could get Canadian government standard
yyyy.mm.dd, iso yyyy-mm-dd or
other popular patterns like yyyy/mm/dd, or perhaps some
Java-like four-digit year formats like 2001/Dec/31. In
W7-32 and W7-64 you can configure custom formats.
There is a sneak question very early in the install process it is easy to
overlook — do you want the US or the Canadian version. You can’t change
your mind later.
In Canada, you can buy preprinted
forms so you can have it print cheques for you. In the USA there in a similar online store. Beware, there are
websites that may have nothing to do with Quicken that attempt to masquerade as the
official Intuit site.
Inuit also make a program called a TurboTax née Quick Tax,
used for preparing income tax for
