probably not. i would post that question in the software subforum therefore someone with more experience would advise if it is possible or not. if quicken doesnt make a linux version you can try to hax it with wine but you are probably better off switching to a linux program (no haxing necessary).

Quickbooks has no Linux version for the client program (the database server can be installed on Linux), however, according to the Wine Application Database Quickbooks in the latest version (6.0) has a PLatinum rating and therefore should run fine using wine: http://appdb.winehq.org/objectManage...ersion&iId=868

The Linux equivalent is Gnucash

Unfortunately, there's no easy way to convert data because the Quickbooks format is undocumented and no-one has got round to reverse-engineering it. But people have switched:
