VERSASOFT's dBMAN, the popular dBASE III+ compatible DBMS that is widely
used on over 20 Unix platforms, is now available for Linux.    Only $99.

Versasoft Corporation of San Jose CA, announces the release of dBMAN V for
the Linux operating system. Priced at $99, dBMAN V single user version
delivers exceptional value and performance.

dBMAN V is a dBASE compatible relational database management system and
features more than 200 enhanced and powerful commands and functions over
dBASE III Plus.  dBMAN V allows most dBASE III Plus applications to run on
Linux without modification. The product is targeted for non programmers and
developers who need database management systems.

With dBMAN V, Linux users can easily create databases and perform ad hoc
queries/edits with English like commands. With dBMAN's "band" style
relational report generator, simple and complex reports can be easily
created without programming.  Columnar and multi-line reports like sales
analysis, invoices, statements, and inventory control sheets can be created.
Report layouts are designed on screen in "bands", and fields can be moved,
copied, deleted, and added by simple keystrokes.

Linux developers can now develop commercial grade multi-user applications
with easy to program dBASE-like language.  dBMAN's powerful commands and
functions allow developers to create applications with friendly user
interface in color using menus, windows and prompt messages.  Commercial
applications such as accounting systems, payroll, inventory control, point
of sale, pest control, heavy machinery maintenance tracking systems are some
examples of applications which have been successfully developed with dBMAN.

Developers can also enjoy an additional benefit of being able to develop
true multi-user commercial applications on Linux inexpensively and run them
on other dBMAN platforms with no change to the programs or the data.
Developers can leverage this tremendous portability to penetrate different
market segments.

-dBMAN V is also available on over 30 platforms including MS DOS, LAN, SCO
UNIX, HP 9000, SUN SPARC AIX RS/6000, DEC, Xenix, Coherent, mainframes and more.
-dBMAN V multi-user version for Linux is priced at $188 for unlimited users
on a single system. With this low price application developers can now
combine dBMAN and Linux for an extremely low cost yet powerful multi-user

1. Linux Database for commercial project

I have to set up a back end database for a web site.  I want to use linux to
run the server and I need to select a database for it.

I had been planning on using Oracle but we have just been quoted $30000
(Aus) per CPU (We were thinking 2 cpus) and that seems maybe a bit

Does anyone have any experience with other databases under linux (redhat)?

We want this site to be very stable.
The database size will probably be around 10+Gb but the structure itself
will be relatively simple.

Any ideas?
What about postgresql?  Is it stable enough and does it support large

Any help/directions would be appreciated.
