I've run Quickbooks 4 and 5 under Wine. Getting Quickbooks 5 to install
was a bit tricky--until I figured out that I had to do it as root. ;-)
In both cases, the inverse (highlighted) text doesn't show up in dialogs.
It appears that it's rendering as white text on white background. I'm not
sure what the problem is, but I've recently posted a question here about
it, subject "inverse text disappears".
The other thing (not tried in Quickbooks 5) is that QB4 seemed to have
trouble printing forms, etc. with various fonts. It basically used one
font and size, regardless of how you tried to set up the printing. There
may be something very obvious to someone who's used wine more than I. . .
