I'm not sure how this helps with Chris's application.  I will agree that 
the number of choices is daunting!  The nice thing about Dabo is the 
group is focused on database applications.  Kind of like Django is 
focused on web devopment.

I mean this in a joking way:  If you find that Python and open source 
creates too many decisions then you can consider Microsoft .NET and 
Microsoft SQL Server on Windows 7.

I am a recovering Microsoft developer of over 20 years.  ;^)

BTW learning Python is awesome!
