What desktop databases are used now?

Hi: I have been a member of EE for a number of years now with much appreciated help (that's especially you pcelba and olaf)  and now I want to hand over my databases to somebody new. Over the years I have used Lotus Approach (brilliant for finding on the fly and copying crosstabs) Paradox (fantastic programming) vfp (great for creating executables); all essentially drawing data from SQL databases, chewing up the data and spitting out reports. And all now defunct or nearly so. SO what do the youngsters use now to interrogate SQL? Just what great software has replaced these titans? I want to train up a youngster to take the company forward; just what should he be learning?
