In many ways, yes.  Acquisition is very similar to inheritance, in that it 
deals with the sharing of namespaces.  After that, it starts to become a 
little more complex. (o8

An important thing to remember if you're coming from an OO background (like 
C++, for instance) is that EVERYTHING is an object.  Even the folders.

I highly recommend you read the Acquisition Algebra document on the Zope 
website (easy to search for).  The main exception to the normal rules of 
acquisition, it seems, is the DTML Method, which directly inherits the 
namespace of the referring object, instead of using AA.
