Almost nothing has changed since then, except for fixing things that

The Base developers wasted too much time with useless wizards covering
no more than 30% of the program's capabilities and with a "self
contained database" document that is a caricature of a database (unsafe,
unsecure, low featured and slow).
Base is best when you ignore most of its tools and helpers relying
entirely on your own skills and on the capabilities of the underlying
database driver.

Interesting; suggests that base exists just to answer the question by
m$ fans: "where is the equivalent to acce$$?

Maybe base should be removed from LO entirely and a separate database
product be developed, perhaps able to include some aspects of the
"spreadsheet paradigm" to data manipulation.
