    Yep. MySQL, that's all around. And it's good, fast, stable. And, with some effort (well documented) fully accessible through OpenOffice.org Base.

    You can download hundreds of free PDF books from FlazX - Welcome to your Computer & IT learning center, it's the best resource for tech. books IMHO, just search for MySQL... and of course there are a lot of online tutorials too.

    I haven't gotten into MySQL or PosgtreSQL yet but I've heard good things about Postgre.

    Filemaker pro has a number of good features, the multi-user aspect is awesome in it.

    Base, the last I've seen, is a far cry from Access. It's a good "base" (pun-intended) but still far behind.

    Since I work in .NET, of course Access and SQL Server are my primary tools.

    Never tried Firebird yet.

    It used to be free but now I think they are charging for it, but Aqua Data Studio allowed connecting to a number of different database types.

    Before you dive into mysql, how complicated are your database files? If your needs are not too complex, you may find sqlite is sufficient. It can be run fairly easily with OpenOffice.

    If your needs are complex, then read the mysql documentation or a standard textbook on mysql before you start.

    In Linux, there is none of the handholding and hiding of the grubby details that you will find on Windows.
