Re: And as long as I'm here ... some general Linux talk

The version is 1.0.  It just came out of beta in September.  Not a 
supported program, but one of the main authors (Andrew Yu) is now working 
for Illustra (, which has a very good product based on 
Postgres.  If he has time and Illustra allows a little leak of 
technology, this could become a great database.  Check out the 
information on "data blades" in Illustra.  Postgres95 has enough freedom 
to allow that kind of plug-in data modules.  Very very interesting.

Back to porting my MSQL programs to postgres... :-)
