    Yes, me too - in USSR they ripped it off and used in Unis as "Rebus" - the interesting thing about dBase ][ is that there was no dBase I - the guy who made it thought it would be good marketing trick to pretend it is 2nd version of the product and thus it is more reliable: no wonder Microsoft switched to versions like Windows 2000!
