My wife, a professional accountant, is using GNUcash for small business and
is making her life much easier.
However, there are a few things it cannot do out of the box, and needs some
tweaking. From memory it is GST stuff and others.
A lot of smaller companies use Xero which is web-based. From my (limited)
inderstanding the customers use it for basic book-keeping while she seems
to do the more "difficult" jobs, as providing regular BAS statements to the
ATO and others.

I have a friend who has been stuck on Windows because of being tied to
being able to hand his accounting data to the accountant in a Tax
Office approved format, which has meant Quicken/QuickBooks or MYOB.
I am not so certain of legal requirements, but what double entry
accounting packages are there, and are any approved? I do know of
GNUCash, but not the current status, and is it available for him to
play with first on Windows.
I an constantly annoyed by the insistence that only commercial
packages are valid, when the quality of the coding is demonstrably
dubious, let alone whether there are any "back doors".
