I also currently use MYOB, which is the last Windows specific program that
I use. I have it working just fine under Win4Lin PRO, which is a
commercial product that virtualises a Windows 2000 layer. This is a little
heavier than Wine, but I had no joy installing it under Wine several years
ago when I did this.

At the end of the day, MYOB and Premier company files are just that...
Files. A good backup plan including daily snapshot backups of the company
file, should be all the insurance you need.

Printing should be a simple one to solve if you can get the application
working ok.

Let me know how you go.
