We are a retail business, ~10 employees, multiple locations of inventory and some drop-ships. I am looking at both Quickbooks Enterprise and something from the Sage 50 family but can't find anything online that provides a good comparison. Anyone use both? Opinions?

I have a copy of Quickbooks 2012 for Mac that I just put up for sale on ebay. (The program just wasn't for me.)
I am getting a number of inquiries from interested bidders about the transfer of the license of the software.
I do not recall if I ever officially registered the software after i installed it or not. I played around with it for a little bit and decided it wasn't for me. I uninstalled the software and it has sat in a box until I put it up today.
How do I go about ensuring that the software and license have my info removed so that the winning bidder can install it on their computer with little to no hassle?
The Intuit/Quickbooks website offers a lot of contradictory information.

My employer has allocated $500/year as a benefit to me for training.
I have not used it yet this year - suggestions?
Areas I'd like to focus on - accounting, excel, QuickBooks, management training. I'm open to other things if they would be useful. [more inside]

Before I begin, I know the most popular and reasonable answer will be to learn and use Quickbooks. There is some sort of 'block' in my brain that will not allow me to learn quickbooks and I am content in using a different software to do the simple things I am needing to do...

If I don't understand Quickbooks online, will Quickbooks the application be better for me? (Or: HTF should I be handling my accounting?) [more inside]

Moving to Peachtree Accounting from Quickbooks, need to learn some basics fast and well: transactions, different account types (checking, credit, A/R), creating and tracking invoices. Print books cost $$$, are unreviewable, and aren't available quickly. I'd like to get this done today. Advice? Am I making a mistake? [more inside]

Feh. I'm straightening out the accounts of a not-for-profit as a volunteer and putting them onto Quickbooks. Before I got my hands on their books, someone paid the same bill twice. How do I enter two checks for one bill and still take the credit on a future bill? [more inside]

Is it possible to open a QuickBooks 2006 company database file in an older version of QuickBooks, namely QuickBooks 2004? Or is there a way to downgrade a 2006 database to a version that would open in 2004? Basically need to open a new database in an old version. Is it possible?

I've been struggling to find accounting software, online or PC/Mac based (either will do) that is suitable for a computer consulting practice. I need to be able to handle the typical basic things done by QuickBooks, like invoicing and estimates, simple A/R and A/P reports, etc. But that isn't enough. I need to manage multiple bill rates on a per consultant/per customer/per job or work order basis. QuickBooks doesn't do that, and I've tried hard to find out how to make that work. Any advice, hive mind?

Has anybody already done the work of configuring GnuCash for an Australian small business? If so, what's involved in electronic submission of a BAS, and is there an easy way to transfer records to an accountant who thinks QuickBooks is the Only Thing? No more inside.

Small Business Owners:
Any experience with Quickbooks or related software? Pros/Cons one system vs. another? How about the various 'point of sale' systems avaible, which might you suggest to a retail business about to start?
