After reading about how my Quicken 2005 would not work with Apple’s new Lion OS, I finally decided it was time to upgrade to Quicken Essentials. Upgrading to Quicken Essentials went without a hitch once I figured out how to follow their less than straightforward UI. Then onto Lion.
Downloading Lion took a few hours. The upgrade went without any problems (save for quitting open applications that I didn’t even know were open!) and is now running my iMac. 🙂
On reboot, Firefox was acting up and I saw some very strange renditions of familiar pages like Yahoo! Mail and one of my websites. After quitting and restarting Firefox a few times, it seems to be working again ok.
I’d hoped that Safari would now allow me to delete my saved passwords. No such luck. That’s a bug that just won’t go away! I’m tempted to bring the thing into the Apple Store and witness what the fix is. Too bad it’s an iMac and not a laptop, probably ain’t gonna happen.
In Lion, the scroll wheel on my mouse is reversed. Going to take some getting used to, but it does seem to make sense in operating in that direction as well. All in all, pretty easy upgrades.
