Question on Database Development Options

Database
MySQL
SQL
Our organization is going to build a database program where there will be millions of entries. Data entry will be done from around the country. The central server will be located in the capital city. Presently we use Windows OS, planning to migrate to Linux OS in next 4-5 years. I'd like to know the followings:
1)   With what program can it be built? Advice with merits and demerits.
2)   Developing on Windows platform, can it be used later in Linux OS.
3)   Can it be built in complex script (Unicode Bangla)?
4)   Can programs like GnuCash be integrated in that database program.
5)   Can the database be built in more than one program like MySQL, Oracle and MSSQL and they will be kept in three different servers where one entry will store data in all 3 server simultenously? 
     a)  Is it technically possible?
     b) If not, what can be best alternative to build a reliable and versatile data storing?

1. Just about any web based programming will work. Options include but are not limited to PHP, ASP.NET, Classic ASP, Perl, Java.
2. Yes apps which are written in those languages can be hosted on Windows and Linux web servers.
3. Probably
4. Things like GnuCash would be integrated via the web app not via the database.
5a. Sure, I suppose so. Not really sure why you would want to do this.
5b. Any of those three database platforms would be fine for storing the data.

    Agree with the web based programming by Mr Denny above. I would also add not to use Microsoft Access. Try to use Oracle or MS SQL.
