Access to Windows: a curious development.

I recently paid $139 ($150 with tax and tip) to use the latest version of Microsoft Access (2010).  I had used Access for heavy baseball research for many years.  My older version was copyright 1992-1999.  I intentionally stopped using it about five years ago because I wanted to be free of any particular PC or OS.  I tried to rely on and google docs spreadsheets, both of which are very good but nothing beats Access for a single user DBMS.

Now I'm re-committed to Windows and will probably upgrade my PC.  Still running WinXP.  My netbook is running Chromium OS.  Check out my baseball blog:
