Need a Mac database solution

edited May 2008 in Vanilla 1.0 Help
It's been years since I worked on a Mac. So, my skills are a bit out of date. A friend wants me to build him a simple database that only 2 people in his office will use. So, you Mac gurus, what Open Source tools are out there that I could use to build some data entry and query screens and a simple report or two? It would also be cool if I could build it on my Windows computer and transfer it to his Macs.

    What's wrong with good ole mysql and php? I'm pretty sure both will run on mac?

    If only two people will use it, then I assume you're not going to need something web-based. With that assumption in mind...

    I've been wanting to try Glom on a project or two for my Ubuntu machines, but too many other projects are on my plate right now. There's a port for it work on Macs: Glom Darwin Port. I haven't tried the Mac version.

    If you want to pay for software (weird I know), you could try the ridiculously over-priced filemaker.

    Filemaker is now Bento?

    Get it right the first time!

    Wow, Bento is awesomely cheaper than filemaker. Too bad it's Mac exclusive...

    Can't it be hosted and made available over the web?

    Also, you can have MySQL for database and OpenOffice (NeoOffice for mac native) for query/report. Both need some skill and may not be worth the pain for a small project.
