"OpenOffice.org Base is just this sort of software. I have
recently been "playing" with the OpenOffice.org Base software on my
GNU/Linux desktop PC and have found it very easy to get started
with. In fact, I have created some test databases, deleted them and
started over a few times to get familiar with the basics of Base.
My experience just using trial and error has shown me that Base is
simple and easy for a database novice like myself. I am so
confident it is simple and easy I have made a video of my creation
of a database to store information about my CD collection. See the
bottom of this article to download the video."
