You're not the first person to sing the praises of Quicken
Home/Business to me, actually. I have Quicken 2003 at home, and have
never gotten the handle on how to use it for expenses or bill
tracking. I'm told QHB has a flatter learning curve.
I'm also wary of using Quicken products because I hate the fact that
Quicken Loans so aggressively promote creative mortgage financing, but
that's an entirely different subject and probably way off topic. :)
