It is a real pity that Firebird doesn't get the attention it deserves compared to other open-source RDMS. It's like an undiscovered gem! For me Firebird beats the pants off MySQL and PostgreSQL. It has more features, is rock solid and stable, is really fast, has an extremely small install footprint, is easy to manage and easy to deploy. I use it for all my commercial and open-source work.
