PostgreSQL port from DBExperts anybody using it ?


I was wondering if anybody here has any feedback on the windows version of
PostgreSQL from DBExperts.

Anything else I should know.

You can get a trial version from them that's good for 30 days.

I ran it and found it to be just as stable and fast as it is on Linux
and BSD. I also ran it against a compiled version in the cygwin
environment and the two seemed to be similar for the most part.
Overall, I'll just say that I was very pleased with the actual product -
very easy, even comes with a silly little Tk-based Access clone - but
support was a bit of a hassle. For awhile, I had a direct line with one
of the guys there, but even that went unheeded now and then. I never
actually sought technical support, however.

One thing that might be worth thinking about though is the (still)
upcoming native Windows version of PostgreSQL.

I've been using dbExperts PostgreSQL 7.2 on Windows for a while.
However, I have made several attempts for support and have never been
successful in getting contacted back. I've tried e-mail, v-mail and
fax. I was interested in upgrading to 7.3 but they never call me back
so I can't.

My experience with them is support is poor.
