Is FileMaker Pro 12 Advanced the best choice for this scenario?

Post

I am trying to determine if FileMaker Pro 12 Advanced the correct choice for this scenario.   

I am a MS Access developer and I've been asked to create an application for a small business.  
The application will have approximately 5 simultaneous MAC users that will be using it most of 
the day to track their entire business process from the customer quote through to the completed job.  
From looking at the FileMaker web site, it appears that sharing the database peer-to-peer from a 
host PC might be a good choice for their situation.

Is it possible to do the programming in FileMaker Pro 12 on my Windows 7 laptop with the data 
housed in MySQL 5.1 Community Edition, then put it on a Windows 7 PC to be the host and 
share it peer-to-peer to MAC laptops on the same network as the host PC?

Thank you for your help,
Jill
