I'm evaluating SS.
Can you point me to a SS demo using database controls such as grids, navigation buttons?
Can you point me to an explanation of SS's basic architecture? Say parallel to the Sections-Categories-Content items, Modules, components, templates documents I have see for the Joomla/Mambo package?
Does SS use mySQL as its "architectural store" as say Joomal does? If not what are the DB options for SS?
I appreciate you help.

SilverStripe uses MySQL to store most of its data yes, although one of our Summer of Code guys is working on Postgres and MS SQL server, via the PDO database abstraction layer.
Have you gone through the four tutorials? You'll notice SilverStripe has more of an emphasis on being a coding framework (like ruby on rails) than Joomla, although it obviously has a the idea of a pre-built CMS system, with modules, themes, widgets.

Thanks Sigurd for your comments.
I have not been into the tutorials.
Will I find the SS architecture explained there?
Is there a DB controls demo there?
I do not know details of Ruby on Rails. My background is Delphi and client-server-database (Firebird) applications, but now needing to use web apps to interface with a client-server app.
