Can anyone confirm that Quicken for Windows and Quickbooks Pro will run under Parallels Workstation?

Quicken and Quickbooks Pro are two of the apps that I would really like to still run on a new Intel-based Mac. I know about the Mac versions, but the Windows versions are better.

I haven't tried, but I'm certain that they don't require 3D hardware and should therefore run perfectly under Parallels Desktop (it's not called Workstation anymore, probably so that they can charge you twice if you want to run on a Windows or Linux host too).

Thanks for the correction on the product name and the encouragement that it will work. I haven't read too many compatability stories, so I wasn't sure if I should expect everything to work or if it was still touch and go during the beta period.

Personally I'd still wait a little while, they're supposedly up to the Release Candidate stage now, but after releasing eight alpha-quality betas, I'm treating this RC as a true beta.
