Submission + - Platform independent C++ OS Library?

quench writes: Hello! I have been away from Windows and Linux application software for 5 years or so, doingly mainly C-like embedded C++ programming.

And a rock solid but simple embedded database to emulate flash memory.
My reflex said, go for ACE ( and Berkley-DB (
Tell me, am I out of time? Am I missing something new and trendy, easier to use and better? Did time stand still?
