database schema, editing, inserting, querying and processing data. As Kexi
is a real member of the KDE and KOffice projects, it integrates fluently
into both on Linux/Unix. It is designed to be fully usable also without
running KDE Desktop on Linux/Unix, MS Windows and Mac OS X platforms.
Kexi is considered as long awaited MS Access replacement.
