Yes, but you'd be much better off finding Linux equivalents of the programs. It's going to be slower, of course...you're running one OS inside another. And Windows isn't exactly known for being 'lean and mean'.
The only things that I don't have for Linux that I'd love, would be TurboTax and Quicken. There's nothing else I need that I don't have a Linux equivalent for.
