Hi

Since OO 3.3 was released, Base at least is unusable on screens with a
resolution of 1024x576. Which in all honesty is a shockingly glaring error,
especially when taking into consideration the popularity of netbooks/umpc's. We
use them alot with work, especially for those of us on call.

Now the natural progression from here, is, that if Osed os.O3.3 isuseless on a
netbook/umpc, then it's also useless on other systems where Base files are also
going to be used on netbooks / umpc's.

That being the case, the only real alternative to OO, is MS Office.

If using MS Office, then there is no other real option, other than to use a MS
based OS

If using MS Office, there is no requirement to use either Hsql or MySQL to make
the database portable, it makes sense to use MS Access.

What follows then, is that, should the database grow too large for MS Access,
the next logical step will be to go down the SQL Server route, again, negating
the need for MySQL, or even Oracle DB.

Putting OO 3.3 out with such  restriction, must be some of the best new
Microsoft has had in an age.
