    DB2 for Mac OS X

    It will be great for Apple, it will give Mac OS X a big boost in Coporate World. Oracle and Sybase is already supporting Mac OS X version of their software. IBM released Lotus Notes for Mac OS X and also, Eclipse (www.eclipse.org), the open source version of IBM's WebSphere Application Studio is also ported to Mac OS X.

    It's always good to see more big names support the O.S. DB2 has been around for Linux for awhile, so it would be nice to have a real, reliable enterprise-capable database on Mac OS X. After all, Sybase has marginal public profile and Oracle tends to charge by the bug.

    It would be nice to see Borland's InterBase here too, but that might be a stretch until they decide how or when to get the underpinnings working on Mac OS X. If they would decide that, we might see the whole range of Borland/Corel products here.
