FWIW, I started out on Adabas D, purely because the ODBC driver worked
on Win16 and it was recommend to me. It seemed like a really 'solid'
system, but the documentation was appalling. Although, at the time, the
only RDBMS I had used was MsAccess. ;o)

However, I couldn't the GUI tools to properly work with distributions
based on newer versions of glibc (it's version of curses did not like
Unix98 PTYs, so I could not admin it via SSH), and the 'complete backup
system' it provided was keen to monopolise the tape drive. It was
somewhat unpredictable at times and I did get it to dump core a few

But the main reason I ditched it in favour of PostgreSQL is that I can
write my own functions in C and link them into the backend, and I know I
can always install the latest bug-fixes without paying more money. And
it just keeps getting better with each release...
