Desktop DBMS engines

4D Tech mailing list
Folks -

Can anyone extend this list with additional desktop DBMS engines they’ve encountered… known to be still alive or otherwise.  As we all know, clients have an annoying habit of hanging on to working applications long beyond their natural life.  Thanks.
4D
dBase & clones
AlphaFour        
FileMaker         (May 2017 ComputerWorld says 1,000,000 users.)
Paradox
Mimer
Clarion
FoxPro
QuickBase (from Intuit?)
Microsoft Access
Xojo
Clarion
R:Base                  
Btrieve                
C-ISAM

double(?) Helix
Foxpro -- Mac/windows version (pre ms purchase) , along with Visual Foxpro (windows only fate MS purchase)
Hypercard - might be considered/used as a database

Also - I *think* there is/was a desktop version of DB2, although maybe it was just a client

I would not call Xojo a DBMS. It is an IDE for development of macOS, Windows, Linux, web, IOS, and Raspberry PI applications. It has no database.

SQL Server Management Studio? Maybe not as you can’t create the user interface with it.
Microsoft Visual Studio

How about:

Firebird
SQLite

Both Can be used as desktop DBMS engines.
