[lug] Industrial Strength DB (was: StarOffice)

In my case an "industrial strength" database has to be able to index ten
fields, handle at least 100,000 records (I'm not there yet but it may well
exceed that before I'm done) {even if I have to buy a huge hard drive} plus
link notefields while maintaining data integrity and no changing a field
because it thinks something else should be there.  If the original data is
non-linear I don't want the program to change data on the assumption that
the original data IS linear.  It would also be nice if it can index and
search fairly rapidly (no sitting around waiting for a datum to appear on
the screen).
