No (MS)Access for you...

This post is more than 2 years old.

So not that this is really a big deal, but as a matter of policy for my open source applications, I'll be removing Microsoft Access support as I make updates. I've recently updated both Soundings and Lighthouse Pro for minor bugs and took the opportunity to remove Access from the docs and from the install folder. I'm not really against Access. I mean I wouldn't recommend it to anyone, not with MySQL being easy to use, but when I finally switched back to Windows after my fling with Apple, I found myself without an Access install. I have been able to get Aqua Data Studio connected to Access but it was a real pain in the rear. So I figured - why am I stressing out over a database format that is not recommended and not easy for me to keep up to date in my applications? Solution - drop it.
