I know Jaws supports it and yes its OK but like the other list member said its really up to what you want to do. If you want to make an application purely for Windows Ms Access 2007 is a great tool. Most likely you wont' end up using access though you will end up coding something in vb or .net and use the ms access data base underneath the hood. I like how fast you can develop tables in access but I find doing things in sql in My sql more my style. It really depends on what kind of software your developing though. You should not develop a multi user database with MS access that is not what its made for. If your making a single user program though then sure go ahead.
