Wine with business apps like QuickBooks, ACT! ?
I'm trying to work out a solution.. I'm getting a new laptop shortly and I want to install Linux on it (this is my first year using Linux, but I love it)
However, I have my own business and need to use certain business apps that have my client data, like Quickbooks and ACT!
I checked on the Wine site but these were not listed, does that mean they won't work, or just that no one has tested them?
Ideally if I can get those apps running in Linux I would be all set. Otherwise, I'm debating between a dual-boot installation, or running Linux under VMware, but then I wouldn't be able to install Beryl/Compiz 3D which I'm really looking forward to trying out.
dual-boot I would really prefer not to do, as I often need to access my business apps, so rebooting the laptop into linux during the day would not be ideal.
Any ideas or suggestions?
