You may already know, you can see how Wine supports different applications here. For example, more recent versions of Quickbooks seem to be supported by Wine (link). Although, I'm running Ubuntu 15.04 and I have found that not all of the supported programs run with Wine yet. Also, VMBox hasn't worked for me on 15.04. Maybe you should choose an earlier ...

By design, PlayOnLinux creates a unique Wine prefix for each app installed through it, because of the fact that some programs require certain things to be installed and others not be installed, so the programs could create conflicts with each other.
