The FileMaker Pro database is out in version 7 and we love it.

This is one of the great ones. FileMaker was originally made by Apple and at first ran only on the Macintosh. Then it was broken out into a separate company called Claris, and now the company is just called FileMaker. That's because the program is famous now. The only other database I would recommend to most users is Alpha 5, from Alpha Software. The popular Microsoft database, Access, is so cumbersome that I've met people who make more than $100,000 a year just because they know how to use it.
