I think this image says it all. What users of Intuit are feeling and what Intuit has been telling it's "loyal users" about the future of their Mac offerings.
I have seen a number of postings from different tech and blogger sites with suggestions on how to proceed. One of the best and most thoughtful is at currently at TidBits. The common thread is .... DON'T UPGRADE TO LION before you have EXPORTED ALL YOUR QUICKEN DATA! The folks at TUAW also had an post with some of the less the optimal suggestions from Intuit.
I think from what I have read, the best alternative is iBank from iGG software. These guys have been around for a long time, they have mobile versions, and they are touting the ability to import your quicken data.
We will let you know when we have had a chance to test this, but the good news is iGG has a 30 day trial download available so you can export you Quicken data and try it out BEFORE YOU UPGRADE TO LION.
If you try it out, please let us know your experiences.
