Project Omega was Microsoft's first serious attempt to create and sell a relational database product in the 1980's.
Microsoft purchased the license to sell an RDMS database program named R:Base. Later in the 1980s Microsoft developed
a database program that was codenamed "Omega." Microsoft did publically acknowledge that during 1988 it was developing
a database program that would run on the Microsoft Windows and their OS/2 operating systems.
The original Omega database was designed to use Embedded Basic language ("EB") The plan was for EB to become the macro
writing language for all Microsoft applications. However the unification of macro languages did not come to fruition with
EB and the macro unification did not occur until the Microsoft's Visual Basic for Applications (VBA).
Omega was intended to serve as a front end for Microsoft's SQL Server, also.
The Omega software application required the usage of large amounts of comuter resources. So much so that it worked
very slowly on the 386 processors in the personal computers being built at that time. Omega was scheduled for a releas date
in the first quarter of 1990. However, 1989 product development suffered a reset, so the Omega delivery date was pushed into
Omega was never released, but portions of the software were included in other Microsoft projects. Cirrus, which was the
codename for Microsoft Access, as well as Thunder, the codename for Visual Basic utilized the Embedded Engine. Following the
introduction of Microsoft Access, the Omega project was revealed in 1992 to the press, demonstrating many features not brought
forward into the Access software.
Access Programmer Insider Info
As one of the Microsoft Access Programmer and Consultant developers who was there at the very beginning of Access database,
we continue to find the history of MS Access to be truly fascinating. We remember the difficulties with computer memory issues and
it was, at times, highly frustrating.
Microsoft Access programmers working with the early editions of Access spent a lot of time testing, and checking memory and
harddrive storage, and the size of their databases. Remember, Microsoft Access stores all information internally, and can become bloated over time.

In Arizona’s largest and most intriguing land deal for the month of August, tech giant Microsoft spent
almost $48 million to acquire 277 acres just west of Phoenix.
According to Scottsdale-based RL Brown Housing Reports, the purchase consists of two parcels of land in Goodyear—154 acres
and 123 acres—adjacent to the Phoenix Goodyear Airport and close to Interstate 10, which connects Phoenix to California.
The question is, what is Microsoft planning?
The site, located at the southwest corner of MC 85 and Lower Buckeye Road, "combines the potential for air, rail, and interstate
connections coupled with a size suitable for a wide range of uses," reports RL Brown.
Though Microsoft has yet to make any announcement about its intentions in Goodyear, the Phoenix Business Journal predicts
"a potential data center and other unknown facilities." Hint: This means more work if you are a Microsoft Access Programmer in Phoeniz, AZ.

the company's dedicated cloud service for government customers, offers "hyperscale comput[ing], storage, networking, and
identity management services, with world-class security."
