| The open development model has also helped to define the development
| technology and tools used to build Drizzle. The code is licensed under the
| GNU GPLv2 and Aker insists that development should be based on a GNU tool
| chain. The core development is based on C99 and Posix.
| As a result of adopting a GNU tool chain, Drizzle will only be available for
| Posix based operating systems. Currently these include Linux (Fedora),
| Solaris Express and Mac OS X.

| multi-core architectures as potential applications for this trimmed down
| version of MySQL server.
