    Intuit Quicken for Mac OS X G5 (2006 model)
    I am a stupid novice at this game !
    I signed up in Jan 29, 2010. Do I have to pay to ask a question ?
    1) I never learned how to use MacForum, therefore, never used it in over 3 yeas..
    2) I don't know what a thread is !
    3) I don't know how to properly ask a question !
    4) Is there a simple tutorial on how to use Mac Forum ?
    5) Where do I go to get an answer/reply?
    6) How do I respond back to someone, who gives a reply?
    7) My question now is: I am a retired Mac user who's pushing 80 yrs old and have using Apple Computers since the 1980s.
    Question: I would like to know which Intuit Quicken Program I should buy (Deluxe or Premier)? I've read not to long ago that Quicken for Mac was not good. I have a Power Mac G5 (Model 2006) operating system is OS X 10.8.6. I have not converted to OS X Lion/Mountain Lion yet. Mac spec: Mac Pro G5, Quad Core, 2.66 GHz, 7 GB Ram, 500 GB Hard Disk.
    8) What is Trackback ?

    Welcome again to the Mac Forums.

    Your G5 machine can not run Snow Leopard, Lion, or Mountain Lion. The latest version of OS X that it can run is Leopard 10.5.8. You can't be running 10.8.6 because there is no such version.

    Also, the latest version of Quicken for the Mac will not run on your machine as it needs an Intel powered Mac to work. Your Mac is PPC powered.

    Are you absolutely sure this is in fact a G5? Your avatar mentions a Mac Pro 1.1 2.66GHz Dual Core which is an Intel machine and can run Snow Leopard OS X.6 and Lion OS X.7. A quick look at the front of the computer will tell if it is a G5 or Mac Pro. Mac Pros have dual optical drive doors.

    If it is a Mac Pro running OS X.6.8 Quicken will be fine.
    Hang on to those original install discs like grim death! Using OS X.7 or later make a bootable USB thumb drive before running Installer!
