Tellico Desktop Database


Article from Issue 57/2005

Linux has a fantastic collection of database servers, but many users just want a simple desktop database. Tellico fills the niche.

Tellico [1], formerly known as Bookcase, was originally designed as a literature database. Now the program not only gives users a virtual bookshelf but also helps organize video, comic, coin, and stamp collections. You could even manage your wine cellar with a little help from Tellico. Just recently, the program introduced a feature for user-defined collections, giving users a handy tool for small data sets. The only restriction is that Tellico does not support database relations.
