Just another person to stand up and wave the Zope flag. I'm in the middle (I hope) of a 
3 year project using Zope and Interbase on Linux for an importer/exporter (US/CA)

This site receives about 300 new shipments a day, each composed of one or more 
packages. Each package is tracked 6 times a day through all major carriers (whichever 
carrier it was reshipped on).

At the moment, our database has 19,250 shipments, 25,355 packages and  318,513 
tracking records in the system (we purge every 3 months). 

There are over 100 users tracking their shipments...

So far, works great.

(btw, due to the broken pipe problem with Interbase's gds client, the Interbase server is 
actually running on a Windows 98 box (gasp!))
