Interesting. But for a simpleton like me...I just know it works. :confused:

I detest Windows and all things Microsoft. That said I have to use an Excel spreadsheet for my job and I have used Quicken on my PC for years. I have Quicken Home and Business. There is no compatible version for Mac. I would have had to go with Quickbooks and convert all my files from the Quicken version to the Quickbooks version.
So I went with Parallels, which allows me to run Windows on the iMac simultaneously. I use it for those 2 programs only, and then shut it down. Gives me the willies to see windows stuff on my iMac.

All the while over Nam I was blaming DuPont for turning all the vegetation brown & here it was F.Fred all along. Way back then they weren't allowed to put the blame on any group so the Corp. stood up & took the heat.
