Unix good...NT bad?
A look to the future.

Please excuse this engineering template. I found no other way to communicate
with this group.

I'm researching for a story on the path of the Information Super Highway...
DATABASE usage on web pages. It comes down to MS SQL server or everyone
else. ( Unix ... the rich man, poor man story )

My point: How can mom and pop build a database in the Unix world to increase
sales for their business when they talk to that world using a W95 box?

I like Apache's approach and market share; Unix HTTPD connectivity; (NT seams to
be buggy as a ISP) but can anyone maintain a DB at 28.8?

Is Apache providing a means to interface with MS Access so users can work on
their DB's offline and then update them without special tools?

This is a serious dead end that business may find after they develope their site.

Jim L..
