    object orientated DB's are on the rise, but so far I dont' see SQL failing
    Both play to different strengths.
    I doubt SQL with dissappear int eh near to medium term
    OO DB's may stay the course, they may not
    of course some may argue that you can have both worlds in DB's such as Postgres

    OO arguably makes sense form a program/application lifetime, leveraging the technology of OO programming
    but it will take a heck of a long time to replace the datahandling and manipulation inherent in SQL
    I'd rather be riding on the Tiger 800 or the Norton
