Even MS admits that...

"Maximum Database file size: 2 gigabytes minus the space needed for system objects"
-- http://support.microsoft.com/default.aspx?scid=kb;en-us;302524

The galaxy won't fit in 2 gigs.

And this surprises you how?

Now why would they want that to work. They have other more expensive applications for you to buy to do that.

Of course...

You can always make a different database for each table, and have one table to link them all. :)

There's always MySQL. (eep!) I'd recommend Postgres, but I'd have to be sadistic to recommend you tinker with it until it compiles under MinGW. And if you compiled it under Cygwin, you'd have the same 2GB limitation. :)

Re: Of course...

get a *n*x (preferably BSD) and put postgresql on it. It's leaps and bounds over mysql. there's no comparing the two. Or look for a win32 port of postgres (assuming it also doesnt have the 2 GB limit)
