Not the first, just "one of"

First non-MS db with a ".Net interface"?
Funny, I though Python provided me that for nearly all databases. ;^)
Anyway, as I understand it .Net uses ODBC as well, meaning it could interface with *any* DB that has ODBC bindings. Surely, they are not assertign that only MySQL and MS SQL Server have ODBC?
This link http://gborg.postgresql.org/project/npgsql/projdisplay.php is just one .Net provider for PostgreSQL. Back in February, it was incorporated into Mono.
According to: http://www.go-mono.com/ado-net.html
Oracle, DB2, SQLLite, and Sybase interfaces are all also in Mono. Last I knew MS didn't own *any* of them.
Oh, and there is also: http://www.datadirect-technologies.com/products/dotnet/dotnetindex.asp
providing .Net for DB2, Oracle, Sybase, and MS SQL. All found with a few short googlings.
*sigh*, more inaccurate marketing hype, it seems. :(
