We experienced big concurrency problems (data corruption, lockups)  
with OmniBase on Linux, accessing the same DB from multiple Squeak  
images. Unless you are on Windows I would not recommend OmniBase.  
Furthermore, OmniBase is much less transparent than for example GOODS  
or Magma and can be tricky to use with Seaside.
