I like that.. you're net getting our hopes up about some OS, only to find
it's dead. :)

Hey, I'll keep that in mind while I'm checking out *nix database systems. 
Now that I'm doing databases quite a bit at work, this looks easy.  Maybe we
could use Postgresql with a CGI script for searching/browsing, with
maintenance directly through Postgresql.

Is a database really necessary though?  What can you do with one that you
can't do without one?
