GemStone 2.x?  That was released in, what, 1987? or 1986?

I think GemStone 4.x was out in the early 90's.

Are you sure you got that product rev number right?  Those stats seem 
reminiscent of 4.x (but naturally without VW or VA GemBuilder).

Why would they do a new Squeak GemBuilder for such an old product? (even 
if it's a stripped down GemBuilder, which I'm sure it is).

Also, a few years ago I had to resurrect a GemStone 4.x system for a 
consulting gig.  It wouldn't even run under Win XP without a lot of 
hoops being jumped through.  One such hoop, if I recall, was the 
inability to work with the filesystem.

And, I don't think Linux was even a gleam in anybody's eye for GemStone 2.x.

Maybe I'll await further details, as I'm sure I'm missing something here.
