All basic function works. Printing to PDF works. (I have not tried downloading information from my financial institution, so I can't comment on that function.)
What does not
I have found nothing that's not working (PDF printing works for me - I've seen comments from others that it didn't work for them...)
What was not tested
Download of information from financial institutions
Here's an update to the install instructions I had posted six months back... 1. Advance prep: Download the Quicken R7 “alternate mondo patch” (QW2012R7MPatch.exe) from http://quicken.intuit.com/support/help/patching/quicken-2012-manual-updates/GEN83594.html 2. From terminal, run winetricks: WINEARCH=win32 winetricks –gui 3. Install the following via winetricks (I'm not 100% sure all are needed, but haven't gone thru process of elimination to check)... - dotnet20 - gdiplus_xp - ie8 (in the past I had to use ie6 or ie7, but ie8 now installs OK for me) - vcrun2008 - corefonts 4. Disable networking (to prevent Quicken from trying automatically to install patches 5. Install Quicken from CD via Wine program loader (take defaults, and don't launch Quicken when done) 6. (optional, but it's probably a good idea) Install Quicken R7 “alternate mondo patch” (QW2012R7MPatch.exe) via Wine program loader (don't start Quicken when finished) 7. Re-enable networking 8. Start Quicken via the wine virtual desktop (not via direct invocation of qw.exe): From the terminal or from a custom app launcher, run "wine explorer /desktop=quicken,1600x1024 qw.exe" (make the desktop size above smaller than that of your monitor/screen, so that taskbar and minimize buttons are visible when Quicken is running). Once you're on the virtual desktop, double-click Quicken icon at top left of virtual desktop to start Quicken. 9. (optional / FYI) Remove the Quicken registration prompt by holding Ctrl + Shift keys and then selecting Tools -> One Step Update.

Installing Quicken 2012 Home and Business on Fedora 16, x86_64
Note: Not all the steps may be required (like msvcrt setting and installing ie6) but Quicken now works so no incentive to test again. Please provide feedback if you decide to avoid ie6 installation or some different settings.
Much improved Wine makes Quicken now install out of the box. No need to use winetricks preparation. Simply create a new wineprefix and run the installation.
After installation, manually running offline update patch worked well.
App crashed on the first run with references to mscoree, which points to .Net Framework requirement. Hence I installed .Net Framework 20 (dotnet20) that I had from previous installation with winetricks. Simply run "wine dotnetfx.exe".
Run "wine qw.exe" from the installed directory or use q4wine GUI. As usual, using a virtual desktop is necessary in order to display the File Open (and possibly other) dialogs.
Once inside the program, remove the registration prompt by holding Ctrl + Shift keys and then selecting Tools -> One Step Update.
