That I can answer, but not from first hand use - only from users who have fought with it, including one who slung a fairly decent MBP against the wall because of it. Apparently, it is like Quicken...

The above also applies to Yosemite. Works fine.

When I got back from my service overseas, both the miniskirt and Star Trek had come out. Loved them both. Actually, I still do. Had all 79 episodes on VCR and later DVD and now as MP4. Still...
