I need educated. :)
What are you talking about with Squeak only being able to write a few
gigs? Are you referring to the image?
What impact would/does this have on Magma?
I have not tried Magma out yet but am very interested.
I am looking for a database which can handle minimally 4+ million
objects. Multi-gig database, possibly 10-20+.
Will Magma be suitable for such? (I know, its not much information.)
Or would I be better off exploring Stephen's BDB (
http://spair.swiki.net/25 ), Colin Putney's Tantalus (
), or just directly to PostgreSQL? I know you can't necessarily answer
that. Just throwing out the alternatives for discussion.

Thanks for any help.
