Can you recommend a forms based database like Filemaker
, MS Access
, or OoO Base
, but lightweight?

I'm using Base right now and it works well, but it's a huge mammoth of a thing and takes up a lot of memory and CPU that I'd rather use for other things. (I use it on a laptop when I DJ so taking over the CPU mid show is a problem.) I'm looking for something that is, in order of importance:
- Windows (XP)
- Not a resource hog
- Not web based.
- Has highly customizable forms.
- Has decent data export (csv, excel, etc)
It doesn't need to deal with millions of records so a SQLite based DB would be enough. Price is less of a consideration that the rest.
It's been forever since I've used FileMaker (Version 5 I think), but I remember it being a similar beast. Is that still true?
