I noticed something recently about the new backend he is coding ( He mentions Northwind, MS SQL. Don't have too much knowledge on these particulars but a quick google showed me that these are alternatives to MySQL (from Microsoft of course). Which were Windows only, I did not see any Linux versions etc. Can someone please tell me otherwise (shed some more light?), I hope he is not alienating 90% of the intarweb servers to run future Vanillas.

    I would guess that since he's been doing a load of work on database abstraction he hopes that the framework will run on both ms and mysql?

    My guess is the same as Minisweeper's. He said earlier that he is using PDO, which is a database abstraction layer. Such a layer would allow an application built on it to use virtually any database backend that is supported by the layer.

    <shameless plug>I however prefer xPDO, which is an extension to the aforementioned layer.</shameless plug>

    Mini/sirlancelot are correct. I'm hoping to support way more than just one database when the next version comes out. DB's I have in mind for support at release-time are MySQL, PostgreSql, and MSSql - so everyone on every platform gets a nice set of options.

    Ah, ok, sweet. Choices are good. I like choices.
