Great! But, please tell them that gnome-db is still in development, it's usable,
but still in development.

We're working to do it, not to do the same as Access, but to provide features
anyone would expect in modern database access application. You may check the gdafe
app, and tell us what you think is missing. Consider that gnome-db has not been
used by too many users up-to-date, so I haven't received too many suggestions on
how to do or add anything.

I also think the same, office is great, OLE/ActiveX is great...
