We don't need visual db components. So no problem here.

In fact I still don't know what it really is.

At home I monitored the newsgroup for a while and once same was 
canceled, I thought the thing would be dead. (Like other Delphi related 
project I monitored died: Kylix / Cross-Kylix / Cross FPC and I had the 
impression that Lazarus would be collecting everyone remaining.)

Should I use Windows or Linux ?

I'll take a look.
