It's actually marvelous in combination with postgresql SDBC driver. And
actually useful as it is so easy to get your data to Calc, more useful
then I remember Access.

It always hurts a bit when people who don't use databases say that Base
is not good, databases are not useful etc.

I know a lot of people that never use a spreadsheet either. But I think
LO wouldn't be complete with Calc or Base.

My experience: de builtin hsql backend was very slow last time I tried,
sqlite unusefull, mysql OK but I couldn't find anything like PG Admin to
administer it. 
mysql workbench (available from Oracle) works well with MySQL/MariaDB

So, if you have the choice, go for postgresql.

I am going to stick my head above the parapet and say it should have
an embedded database functionality that is secure and reliable.
Since recently, LO comes with a native driver for PostgreSQL. That's
probably the best thing that the LO developers have done for quite
some time. Since it makes LO Base actually useable *and a lot better*
than Access (which is unusable with PostgreSQL).

That is an essential requirement for entry-level users that have only
ever used Access.
Reliability? As an essential requirement for Access users?


Access is a pathological data shredder.
