Yes, that's because its GemStone 64 bit version, not 32 bit one. Latest and greatest as they say, not to worry :)

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.
