Note there's always wine / Crossover Linux.  I personally pay for
Crossover (it's about $40 or so I think) and I feel it's well worth the
money.  Plus they're "good folks" and all the improvements they make to
wine are put back into the public version.

Crossover runs Quicken as well as MS Office (most versions including
2007) and a plethora of other MS software.  If that's the only thing
holding them back, and they want to move to GNU/Linux, then it's money
well spent (and it's less than you'll pay for Windows!)
