Hiya,

I'd opt for PostgreSQL mainly due to the Licence for commercial use  
(unless that's changed).

For OS X PostgreSQL go here: http://www.postgresqlformac.com

OpenBase is another option, I believe it's still free for 10  
connections (you mentioned no heavy usage, I'm assuming connections  
here).

Firebird is cool too.

You say it how you spell it (which in English is a good point for  
conversation...).

Cheers,

Luis.
