Kexi Project - "Microsoft Access for Linux" - Home
Kexi is an integrated data management application. It can be used for creating database schemas, inserting data, performing queries, and processing data. Forms can be created to provide a custom interface to your data. All database objects - tables, queries and forms - are stored in the database, making it easy to share data and design.

Kexi is considered as a long awaited Open Source competitor for Microsoft Access, FileMaker and Oracle Forms. Its development is motivated by the lack of Rapid Application Development RAD) tools for database systems that are sufficiently powerful, inexpensive, open standards driven and portable across many operating systems and hardware platforms.
Kexi is Free/Libre/Open-Source Software. As a real member of the KDE and Calligra Suite projects, Kexi integrates fluently into both. It is designed to be fully usable also without KDE on Linux/Unix, Mac OS X (with Fink) and MS Windows platforms.
