Why are you looking for an alternative to VMWare? I'm a happy customer
of VMWare (the only Linux-related software I've bought, other than
RedHat CD's). VMWare works great. I don't run QuickBooks although I do
run regular old Quicken (on Win98), and it's flawless (other than a bit
slow sometimes). I haven't checked their prices in a while but when I
bought it (over a year ago), I think I paid under $100.

    I have a nagging memory that at one of the BLUG meetings (possibly as the 10 
    minute demo) we were shown a product other than vmware or wine that could be 
    used for running windows apps on a linux box. (I'm pretty sure this other 
    product had a moderate pricetag.)
    Can anyone tell me 1.) what this product was? 2) Is it possible to load and 
    run Quickbooks 2001 with it? (I know some functionality will probably be 
    missing because Quickbooks insists on the presence of IE 5.5 or later).
    I have transferred my personal accounts from Quicken to GNUCash, but I would 
    like to be able to mirror my company's acounts on my Linux-only laptop. 
    Migration from Quickbooks is not an option in the foreseeable future, since 
    we use Intuit's payroll service, among others.
    Is anyone using Quickbooks from a Linux platform?
