Aleph One (where I was at until very recently) use Sage under DosEMU (It ran for the previous decade on one of our PC-cards in a RISCOS machine). We did have to argue with Sage quite hard to let us keep using the DOS version, when they tried to use the millenium bug to get everyone to move to Windows.
Sage is pretty good even for quite fancy accounting (multiple companies, built in stock control etc), and bookeepers like it. The DOS GUI/function key interface is quite efficient. But no doubt that version is unobtainium these days. And of course it's not free software. That and the OED (win95 version under wine) are the only proprietary apps we use.
