In the past, some versions of StarOffice were bundled with a limited
freeware version of the Adabas database engine.

The Adabas support is still present in LibreOffice; howewer, I'm not sure
if it is still used or if the free (as in beer) Adabas version is still
available somewhere.

I would like to know if some people still use it, and on which platforms.

You would probably get more input if you posted your question on one of
the forums, in the Base section.

Thanks for the tip, I'll have a look there.

I suppose the real question is : why do you want to remove it if it
continues to work OK ?

Oh, I'm really indifferent about it; what I'm concerned about is the hardcoded
list of platforms determining whether the client library is build or not.

I'd like to remove this list, and either build the adabas client library for
all systems or not at all.
There's no need to have artificial platform differences in the code which make
porting to new platforms or future maintainance more difficult.

If Adabas D really is abandonware, we could kill two birds with one stone.
