I'd have to stick my hands up and confess to running a business using QuickBooks with wine. It seems to function just fine for me ... although I use the version of wine I compiled myself rather than the one you can download with Fedora Core 6 (which is what the underlying server runs).
My basic problem is that the firm of accountants who audit the books also run Quickbooks, so unless I can *export* to the proprietary format, my accouting bill goes way up.
So, I'll watch your experiment with interest ... I suspect there are a large number of other businesses out there in this position.
