Connecting ArcGIS and PostGIS

Doing some research on the viability of setting up a spatial server. One option is to setup Postgres + PostGIS but a precondition would be the ability to read data from PostGIS directly into ArcMap for viewing (if not editing.)

How can I connect to a PostGIS database from ArcMap 9.3 and 10.0?
- Suggestions are ZigGIS for Arc 9.x
- Use a Query Layer to connect for Arc 10.x (viewing only)

zigGIS
- A summary of some of zigGIS' capabilities.
- Version 2.0 is propreitary but 3.0 will be opensource. Here's the roadmap for 3.0.
- Thoughtful blogpost from a developer with first-hand involvement in zigGIS.

Query Layer in Arc 10.x

- What is a query layer?

- Summary information from ESRI.

- Potentially useful How To involving Query Layers, postGIS and Dekho(?).
