I use Parallels regularly to run a single program and it works like a charm and is quite fast enough on my 2009 MacPro. But I run into problems at least half the time with upgrades like today where the upgrader removed my current version and quit.I was prepared so the prigram is re-installed and I have created a ticket. But this happens all the time and is not something that any program should cause.

And of course prigram is program.

I have been using various Quicken incarnations since 1999 and was ( and still will be using) Quicken 2007.

I bought Quicken Essentials hoping for a native Intel program and I did indeed get that but...

1) I do not use Quicken for check writing do that didn't matter.

2) I do use it to follow stocks so that matters.

3) I do export to Excel for my accountant and that matters. I could find no way to do this is Essentials.

4) My file went from 6 meg to 27 meg(!!) for the same data and since I keep at least monthly backups, two daily backups and several other backups that matters. What before took up 30 megs now uses 135 megs and since I use a PGP virtual partition the difference matters.

5) I do not like how the reports are set up and especially that one has to accept their setup and modify them each and every time. There is no way to easily do much of what was easily done in Quicken 2007.

6) On my MacPro, Essentials was not faster than Quicken 2007 under Rosetta on general use.

So I shall continue to use Quicken 2007 and then switch to another manufacturers program when support for Rosetta is dropped.

Works well on both my PPC (10.4.11) and my Intel (10.5.4) machines. Does what it is supposed to do. I have not had the time to encrypt my boot disk as yet but use the Virtual disks and have been using them for years without any data loss.

Whenever I have needed help, it has been provided promptly and always proven useful and to the point.

Love this program.

OnyX 1.61 already pposted and solves the launch problem!

[Version 1.6.1]

Works as described.

Note re Onyx: Was a great program with 10.3 but no version runs on 10.4 so comments lack any real meaning.

Works well with 10.3.9 and does exactly what is claims to do.
Good responses from developer.

Using 2.73 Onyx messes up my permissions such that I have to do a restore from backup to use the disk.

This happened before with earlier versions but I wasn't 100% sure it was Onyx but today I ran it only for permissions and boom, useless disk with lots of "you cannot use that " etc due to not having the right permissions and we are talking about my home directory. Running other permission repairs does not help.
Is this just my machine or have others had this issue?
