I'm seriously considering trying it with Syabse 11, which is what I run.
So far in the past I've found MS SQL and Sybase to be fairly compatable
(they were identical at one point in time). Any plans of addressing
some of the specific needs of us USR Total Control folks in 2.2 ? I'd
be much more interested in it at that time ? Also are there any limits
on the number of users planned for this price ?
