Yes, you are probably right.

There are no examples of ROE, but you can look at packages/roe/Tests.st 
(or browse the ROE namespace after evaluating "(PackageLoader packageAt: 
'ROE') test fileInPackage").  In GST, you can just use "connection >> 
'tablename'" on a DBI Connection object, to get a ROE object for the 
given table.

Regarding your other question, GNU Smalltalk works on XP for sure 
(Cygwin, don't know about MinGW as I got different messages with mixed 
results).  I don't know anything about Vista, but in any case you would 
probably be better off with Cygwin.
