Effectively you can use any database for which you have a valid ODBC setup under Windows.  Recommended are the normal: MS-Access, MS SQL-Server, Firebird/Interbase, MySQL, Oracle.  The MacOS situation is a bit more restrictive in that you cannot use the two Microsoft Databases.  Make sure that you install the SQLdb package into Lazarus.

Database tutorials are here:

http://wiki.lazarus.freepascal.org/Lazarus_Database_Tutorial

About choosing a database, it´s a question of evaluating the pros and cons of the different dbs, and of course the specifications of your particular project mather for this.

Personally I like sqlite, but that´s just personal preference.

TSqliteDataset supports UTF8 encoded strings (The lazarus default). It will not work only if you use UTF16 (WideString) encoded strings.

PS: to use unicode under win32 is needed to compile with special parameter
