Dude you obviously didn't read my post re: Kylix, just above
your own. Try it out. It's available for free, and it kick's Access's
I think you're missing one VERY important solution: Kylix.
It's delphi for Linux (by Borland for those who don't know).
It is available for free for those making GPL'd software. I bought the 'Desktop Developer' while it was on special for $AUS500, and it was worth it, if just for mucking around with.
Kylix has an embedded SQL-compliant database engine, and also can link to other databases (natively to mysql, and you can use unixODBC for others...).
The IDE currently runs (and crashes) under wine, but they apparently are working on a native Linux IDE. The compiled code, however, is native 32-bit ELF format, and is quite fast.
There are more features than you can point a stick at (seriously, it's jam-packed). There are also report writers you can download, and others for a small (ie ~$20) fee.
It really kicks butt. If it weren't for the bloody thing segfaulting every so often, I'd be one happy camper. But anyway save often and all is sweet!
By the way - I am not employed by Borland...
