Intuit is seeking 5,000 QuickBooks users to check out the upcoming 2006 release of its business accounting package. The company isn’t offering many details of the beta, code-named “Denali,” and is asking testers simply to install the release and complete a short survey before uninstalling.
Those willing to spend 30 to 60 minutes trialing Denali will be given a chance to win either a 7-day trip to Hawaii for two, 42-inch plasma TV or $2,000 in cash. Only the first 5,000 applicants running QuickBooks for Windows will be accepted. A high-speed Internet connection is required to download the Denali bits.
