Vista DB, an embedable database for .NET - very cool

I've been following Vista DB for a little while now... basically they have built what is a small footprint database engine for cleanly embedding into an application... no MDAC incompatibilities (with Access/SQL Server), no external service that has to be installed/maintained/(another 24/7 virus target!), and runs in the same process space, so restarts are completely under your [application's] control.

And I'd like to get my free copy ;-)

VistaDB 2.1 database for .NET has been released
This 2.1 update includes over 60 improvements, including new support for .NET 2.0 and Visual Studio 2005. VistaDB is a small-footprint, embedded SQL database alternative to Jet/Access, MSDE and SQL Server Express 2005 that enables developers to build .NET 1.1 and .NET 2.0 applications. Features SQL-92 support, small 500KB embedded footprint, free 2-User VistaDB Server for remote TCP/IP data access, royalty free distribution for both embedded and server, Copy 'n Go! deployment, managed ADO.NET Provider, data management and data migration tools. Free trial is available for download.
