Alternatives to Microsoft Office Access for Linux with any license

  • LibreOffice - Base

    Open-source database front-end similar to Microsoft Access with extensive database engine support.

    • LibreOffice is the most popular office suite on Linux and the open source community. It's completely free and open source, while the latest version of Microsoft Access requires a subscription. Based on OpenOffice Base, LibreOffice Base is a popular alternative to Access. Guest • Nov 2017 • 8 agrees and 8 disagrees Disagree   Agree
    • Libre Office is far from MS Access. You may connect to db servers, yes, but it's not possible to design and present a well structured user interface like an commercial application, and also, the programming language, and the interface aren't enough developed to achive the strenght and the power of MS Access. (I'm a OS Lover, but I'm sorry, Access is enough one of the mosts powerful user database, which any developer may deploy wide and very strong applications.)

    • LO Base does lack huge amount of user-friendly functionality which MS Access has. It is more like a LO-Writer based front-end. Very much (and very much common) tasks can only be done by including macro-code, so you have to be quite skilled in programming Base. For that it's not a good alternative to MS Access, except you just want to do simple tasks. For any more complicated tasks it's just very time-consuming.

    • Microsoft Access is for Small businesses looking to create a database without a server. Base just can't compete with that function; it's more of a glorified spreadsheet. Guest • Feb 2019 • 7 agrees and 2 disagrees Disagree   Agree
    • Is a good alternative; even better because it uses common and more powerful databases like mysql or postgres Guest • Mar 2017 • 5 agrees and 10 disagrees Disagree   Agree
