    Question Unanswered: MySQL vs MsAccess for Small Biz Apps

    Hello,

    Our very small company (3 people) is planning
    to develop an in house DB app for managing the
    common business operations dealing with customers,
    orders, inventory, etc.

    Initially it will work on a single Windows PC.
    However, in the future it might migrate to a
    Client-Server approach.

    The main goal is to find some plataform that:
    - is stable, does not crash all the time;
    - easy to use, not requiring deep coding and/or learning;
    - allows not only the managm. of tables and queries,
    but also of forms and reports (or something similar);
    - provides a good and flexible interface to the user;
    - low plataform cost (free or under $100).

    From what I've seen it appears that MS Access
    is the most recomendable plataform in such a
    situation. However, I would like to know about
    other alternatives, namely:
    * MySQL + Some Easy2Use GUI Client

    Does it make sense use MySQL in such a situation?

    Do you know of any similar examples that I can
    learn from?

    MySQL is not free if you use it in business purposes. It is cheap but not free -> http://www.mysql.com/support/arrangements/price.html
