14.1 is dead. Long live 14.1!

And for those of us who haven't upgraded yet, I have a quick survey. By
show of e-mails, how many are still running 14.x and how many are still
running, um, er older versions?

Re: Good bye IDMS ???
"I have to agree with Lutz about the sexier side of GUI relational apps
but we are going, in about 3 more years, because us '50 somethings', who
can write for IDMS are being replaced by '20/30 somethings' who can
point/click/copy/paste code hidden behind a GUI into a **** looking app.
The latest MS SQL Server even allows developers to write code that is
'nearly inside the core database engine' with its CLR interface. It has
been said that the replacement systems are supposed to challenge the now
faster IDMS apps, because of SHARK DASD and cached buffers, but whether
it is enforced is a moot point.
