Yeah, that's just me. I don't support Windows in any way. However, MySQLdb
does work there, so I am told. If you can't get it to compile or
something, I can't help you.

 Thanks for the historical pointer.

Read the QuickStart if you really want to dig up some archane terms ;-)

 Another question of 'Zope Culture': Is the anti Win98 feeling
 I get an accurate assessment of the Zopista community?

Not so much the Zope community as anyone who runs servers IMHO :S

 I've been having more than a little difficulty installing
 MySQL-Zope tools on Win98 ('ZMySQLDA on Win32'). Only one
 person (Phil Harris) has been willing to answer questions.

Maybe he's tried it, I know i haven't...

 But the mailing list, by volume and quality, gives clear
 evidence of an active and intelligent Zope community.

Thanks, on their behalf ;-)

 I currently function in two worlds, Win98 and Linux.
 Would I be right to say that 90% of Zopers live in world
 number two?

I dunno. Lots of Linux yes, but a lot of other *nix too and at least a
proportion of WinNT and 2K.

cheers,

Chris

Why not set up a Poll on zope.org to find out about these things.
Like a weekly poll.
Here - DC - are some other questions I can consider to participate in:
- What platform do you use for your Zope?
- Do you use Apache (ZAP) infront of your Zserver?
- Are you subscribing to the mailing list?
- Do you check the mailing list archive before you post to the mailninglist?
- Are you webmaster of the server you run Zope on?
-
-

This would also make people go back to zope.org more often, and all its
benefits.
Count me in for help!

Most of Zope (and python in general) is shockingly platform-neutral.

It sounds like the same might not be true of MySQL.
