Argh!

I went to BestBuy today to get TurboTax for the mac and decided to check the PeeCee version as well. To my horror (but not surprise), the Mac version was $10 more than the equivalent peecee version.

Given Intuit's lackluster support for the mac platform (the latest Quicken blows), I can only assume their mac team is very small (like AOL's) and thus has very little overhead. Like AOL, the Mac is probably pure profit for Intuit since paying for the very few developers can't cost much.

Sigh. No matter how much I want to support the mac, I'm not paying more money for an inferior product.
