Piotr,

The latest version of the Perl Journal (Sprint 1999, www.tpj.com)
has an article by Lincoln Stein in which Lincoln points
out the pros and cons of using ACEDB for ANY project.

PostgreSQL (www.postgresql.org) and Sybase (linux.sybase.com)
are excellent free alternatives.  The major difference being that
ACEDB is Object-Oriented, PostgreSQL is Object-Relational and
Sybase is a classic Relational Database.

Regards,

Joe
