Can we contest any of those? :D Just kidding! Thanks for having the Polls Jeremy, very nice to see what everybody is using, or rather the majority. Also, gives a lot of ideas on new programs to use.

Thanks again,

I voted for PostgreSQL I believe. Why? 2 Reasons:

1. Because until about a year ago (or less?) MySQL didn't support foreign keys!
2. I wanted to win the prize (and did!).

BTW Netraverse's Win4Lin requires patching and recompiling the kernel, and I don't have a vanilla kernel so I think it would best work on an LFS. It's on hold for the time being.
