    not dBASE compatible:
  • xBase in name only - not dBASE compatible but another DBMS. (Is this saying that "xBase" is a product that is xBase in name only?)
  • rBase in name only - not dBASE compatible but another DBMS. (Is this saying that "rBase" is a product that is similar to xBase in name only?)
  • SuperBase - still alive, but not very well supported. The ODBC driver is not compatible with the application's locking scheme.
