Office has 2 computers - 1 PC with home Vista and the other an iMAC.

I want both to be able to use a shared database cross platform and share files.
Should I upgrade the Vista Home PC to Win7Pro and create a network and share a NAS?  What would you recommend for the database?  Fusion/Parrallel on the MAC and use Access would work BUT seems a bit of a dated solution.  The Database is going to be quite simple.

Any suggestions would be appreciated.
