I frequently have Oracle die-hards tell me (and more worryingly, management) that Access is a toy that will fall over when more than a couple of users log on. I have yet to have any of them rise to the challenge of siting a single example of a correctly set up, split application in Access that isn't stable under load. Mine are certainly stable and reliable, the only problematic ones are set up by dabblers. None of the aforementioned die-hards even know what a split Access application is.
