I spent some time at Macworld Expo talking with Aaron Patzer, VP at Intuit, about the upcoming Quicken Essentials, the company's replacement for Quicken 2007.

Among a multitude of new features are greatly improved reporting, budgeting with easy-to-see historical activity levels, and support for thousands of additional financial institutions.
