Say, there, computer people! I need a recommendation. What I'm looking for is database software -- not SQL-type relational database, but FileMaker-type GUI database. And here are my requirements:

1. It has to be available for Mac.

2. It has to be somewhat powerful -- it doesn't have to be some incredibly broadbased, ultra-configurable thing like Crystal, but I want something somewhat robust.

3. It has to be -- and this is important -- free. Or "free", if you catch my drift.

I'm a huge fan of FileMaker; it would be perfect for what I need to do. But no way am I going to pony up $400 for it, and I haven't had any success in getting it via the special magic internet. I've tried Eagle Pro, but it's pretty bare-bones; I'd like something a little more vigorous.

Anyone got any ideas? Recommendations? Has anyone tried the database software that comes with AppleWorks (I have it, but I've never given it a spin)? PLZ ADVZ
