Free Jaguar with MYOB

Free Jaguar with MYOB -- Apple may be bundling a "New User Edition" of Intuit's QuickBooks accounting program with new professional level Macs, but long-time Macintosh accounting software vendor MYOB isn't taking it lying down. Buy a copy of MYOB AccountEdge before 31-Mar-03 and you can get a free copy of Mac OS X 10.2 from MYOB. Oh, and that bundled version of QuickBooks? It's not QuickBooks Pro 5, and you must upgrade to QuickBooks Pro 5 to get job costing, estimates, time tracking, and a new visual report finder. [ACE]
