    When you purchase Subscription Quicken (2018+), you get both Win and Mac versions, so you can try both to see if Mac fits your needs.
    NOTE: The data files are not cross compatible, so you can't switch back and forth.  The Win to Mac process works fairly well, the Mac to Win is very broken.
    There is no side-by-side comparison, but this link takes you to the closest thing:

    -splasher  using Q since 1996 -  Subscription  -  Win10
    -also older versions as needed for testing
