To answer the question about the FREE license, OpenBase Solo is a
personal free database which can be used for a variety of purposes

I also imagine that there are probably a number of questions
surrounding Apple's and OpenBase's decision to unbundle OpenBase from

As many of you know, we are committed to making sure OpenBase runs
well on every operating system version. This can sometimes be
challenging as some OS upgrades have required changes to OpenBase to
keep it running smoothly. And while we are proactive about these, it
is also important to make sure that these new versions are included
with products that bundle OpenBase.
However, for whatever reason, updates to OpenBase for WebObjects have
been infrequent (2 year old versions of OpenBase have often come with
WebObjects). This has caused a lot of confusion as customers install
the latest version of OpenBase, only to accidentially over-write it
with an older version while installing WebObjects. So we hope this
move allows us to provide a better experience for all of you.
We are committed to supporting WebObjects, Leopard and 64-bit, as well
as a number of other environments. As many of you know, we support
other OSes as well (Linux and Windows as well as MacOS X). And most
importantly, OpenBase offers instant connectivity to a variety of
business packages such as Daylite and Lightspeed POS.
If anyone has any other questions I would be happy to answer them.
And if you have any suggestions on how we can support the WebObjects
community better, please feel free to email me directly.
