Cry, PC users — this application is only for the Mac. Cry, Mac users, if you're not using Leopard. Bento takes advantage of Apple's Core OS Architectural Layer and Core Services. FileMaker Pro is the robust professional database application at the hefty price of $299, but Bento is for the rest of us at $49 (personal or small business use). It is the database that replaces AppleWorks, IMO. FileMaker is a subsidiary of Apple Inc., which explains why it has the look and feel of Apple's iWork and iLife applications, making the learning curve almost trivial.
