Yes - that's it Peter.

The system requirements listed on the website include Microsoft Data
Access Components (MDAC), and a quick look in the directory where files
are saved shows that all of the files have the .mdb file extension (a
Microsoft Access database).

The core developers are not really using Windows. So no windows specific components.
What can this program do that Gramps does not? Apart from the specific entry for types of sources (somewhat like the census gramplet in Gramps), I don't see benefits. And it seems as different sources have their own fields, which would indicate their own storage, which is very specific programming Gramps tries to avoid (as it aims for a broad international support).

As it is access, it should be possible to open the store (if not encrypted) and export data like that.

The programme also includes an export function, but unfortunately only
to Excel, Text, & HTML.
