(trickykid - I wasn't sure if this should go in Software or Linux-General. Sorry if you have to move it.)
I have a quick question.
I have a client that would like me to build a database for them. The client has about 10 people in the whole company. I can use any software of my choice. The client is currently using Microsoft Office 2000 which includes Access 2000.
I would love to build a database for them with open souce software, and then install something on their PC's so they can use the database. I know that there are MySQL, Postgres, etc...but I thought those were compairable to Microsoft SQL. Does the Linux world have an Access type of database program?
Would you guys just build the database in Access or use something open source
Also, what on earth would you charge to build a database? I usually charge $50 per hour for desktop stuff and $100 per hour for server/network stuff.
Would I charge like $250 for the database or what? It would have I think about 6 fields and maybe like 15,000 records.
Any suggestions? All help appreciated
