Lightswitch.  Wow.  Now you should know how to use the other tools, but this tool looks pretty good.  It is included in Visual Studio 12 RC, not the Express version.  So download the Visual Studio 12 RC, and the Visual Studio Express for Windows 8 Beta, but do both.

As a result of this input from a reader, I am modifying my blogs on database support.  Since Lightswitch will be offered in Visual Studio 12 students and professors will have access to it through Dreamspark Premium and it is sort of free.  As a result I will drop my Access arc of discussion.
