Niche because they were created for a subset of functionality of the net and most net technology is a niche when it comes to databases. So is ebay, Amazon and many such others. Although of course the net folks like to agrandish themselves "because they use the same technologies". Funny reality of course is: they don't. Neither ebay nor Amazon, google or many others use such. From my days of dealing with google's own traffic, they used a lot of perl. And specially modified - Ccode - Apache. And that was it. Couldn't care less about community, or how many flog it.

OO is useless for any quick database work.
