    Is there anyone else interested in running Statice on a SUN?  We are
    contemplating requesting that Symbolics make a Unix port.  We are also
    considering if we should pay Symbolics for the port. If we are the only
    potential client for this product, then it is reasonable for us to pay
    the porting cost.  However, if there is a sufficiently large potential
    market out, the cost of the port would be more manageable for us.

    If you are using Statice, and have experience with other object-oriented
    or semantic databases, and have a real project where you can use an
    OODBMS running on Unix, please post a note to slug and reply to me also.
    (Whether you can pay for the port is irrelevant at this point.) In order
    to get a realistic survey, please reply to me only if you meet all three

    I will post the results of the survey in 14 days.  

    Thank you,

We're using Statice on a UX400S and need database access from a Unix
host.  But in the short term, we won't need Statice running on the Unix
host; the lispm can be the server.  Future system architecture may
involve using CLIM (and CLOS) on a Sun, in which case it would be great
to have Statice running on a Sun.
