Microsoft Office Access Comments

Some of them are not real alternatives

Negative Comment by tomaseroles
about Microsoft Office Access 3 days ago

I can't agree with your list unless what you want to do is to play with a database as a simple toy.
I'm a linux and open source user since more than 10 years and very critical with the politics of licensing of M$, but I use access after more than 20 years.
I've been ckeched some of the applications you have in the list, and maybe the only one who can reach Access is FileMaker.
Access is not only a tool for browse databases, but also is a great tool to develop applications, easier to use than VB.NET or similar.
You may create good and complete applications with Access, and offer them to customers or users and have a nice experience for the user. It's useful, it's practical, it's easy, it's a tool which you can develop an application in few times.
It's so good that sometimes it's difficult to believe that it's a Microsoft application.
In fact, if you wish to develop with an alternative to Access, you have to use FileMaker. The best option of filemaker is that it allows to develop to Windows and for Mac

And I forgot, it's programming language, VBA has a nice leaning curve, and allows to the programmer to make very impressive and useful applications.
