How could you have missed Oracle?! :p Sure I'd like to help, but ODBC and Access are not database servers. Access is just a database file and ODBC is an API to a database.
If you want a list of databases, visit: http://dmoz.org/Computers/Software/Databases/

Here's a list of what I think are mainstream databases:

mSQL - http://www.hughes.com.au/
FireBird - http://firebird.sourceforge.net/index.php
MySQL - http://www.mysql.com/
Oracle - http://www.oracle.com
PostgreSQL - http://www.postgresql.org/
SAP DB - http://www.sapdb.org/
SQL Server - http://www.microsoft.com/sql/
Sybase - http://www.sybase.com/home
DB2 - http://www-306.ibm.com/software/data/db2/

The whole point is for members to contribute :P Not for Dan to post somewhere that Floris can copy/paste :P Silly Dan. ;)

It'll save time that way. Rather than each user posting one database, he can just copy and paste them. ;)

I'd submit that what is listed above are not database servers. They are databases. That may in fact have been the intent of the ask which is fine, but apps do not equal servers.

Technically, MySql is not a database server. It is a database engine and the engine plus the supporting hardware/software constitutes a database server. A database, however, is the set of tables/stored procedures, etc. specific to an implementation. That is why we refer to things like an employee database or a student database, meaning the specific implementation rather than the underlying hardware or DB engine.

But that's if you want to be pedantic. In the confines of an informal discussion everyone knows the OP's intentions.
