+libgda can be found at http://www.gnome-db.org/
+However, libgda does not work on Windows.  It mainly runs on Linux.
+It is portable to other operating systems, such as, Windows.  I have 
+heard some people successfully built libgda on Windows; however, I 
+was never able to verify this.
+In my opinion I propose someone do either of the following:
+  1. get libgda to build and work on Windows
+  2. use System.Data.Odbc as its underlying engine
+  3. multiplex to other data providers that already exist in Mono
+  4. use some other engine
+Either way you go, System.Data.OleDb needs to much love, testing, and 
+bug fixing to be more compatible with Microsof .NET's 
+Rodrigo Moya is the maintainer of libgda.
