I have tried Borland Kylix OE. A copy of Kylix Enterprise Edition with MySQL
could make a _nearest_ combo to VB/Oracle AFAIK.
BTW, Kylix EE is a commercial software. But Kylix Open Edition is free and
meant for creating open source gpl'd programs (am i right?) only. It is a
free download and lacks the easy ADO control like Database interactivity
(Enterprise edition has this functionality).
You need to know object pascal to work with kylix. The best part of this is
that, your program may also be cross platform compatible: the kylix source
code can be compiled as a windows exe using delphi.

i would first like to enquire about the availability of Fedora Core 1 cds

cds(except for downloading them from the net).
Secondly i would like to make a request to all the knowledgable Linux world
programmers to provide me with an alternative for VB/Oracle combination on
Windows to perform a DBMS lab project in Linux.I already have MySQL
installed and i thnk it would be a suitable replacemetn for Oracle. However
i would like to know if there is any other alternative. (What about
PostgreSQL). But the front end is something that i really need to know.
Also if possible mention some reference for the suggested front end.
Last but not the least if any body can come up with a good topic which can
be practically applied on instead of just ending up as a college project
pls do so. (P.S. : I was first going for a personal accounting software but
when i saw GNUCash ona friend's suggestion i was totally amazed. It offered
a lot more than what i could have imagined. Just goes to show the power of
Open Source and how there are projects and tools there that we cant even
think about in the proprietary world(denominated of course by MicroSoft).
3 cheers for OSS.
