Blogger Database Freebie

So it’s no free bottle of wine,
but VistaDB are giving away a copy of their $229 embeddable database to
bloggers. Can’t see if there’s any Compact Framework support anywhere
in there, but for the desktop they claim it’s a simple alternative to
Jet or MSDE etc. I could use some of that, so let me pimp it thusly:

VistaDB 2.1 database for .NET has been released

This 2.1 update includes over 60 improvements, including new support
for .NET 2.0 and Visual Studio .NET 2005. VistaDB is a small-footprint,
embedded SQL database alternative to Jet/Access, MSDE and SQL Server
Express 2005 that enables developers to build .NET 1.1 and .NET 2.0
applications. Features SQL-92 support, small 500KB embedded footprint,
free 2-User VistaDB Server for remote TCP/IP data access, royalty free
distribution for both embedded and server, Copy ‘n Go! deployment,
managed ADO.NET Provider, data management and data migration tools.
Free trial is available for download.
