"Full of features and high performance. It's free!"

December 14, 2009  |  By bitbar

 |  Version: Firebird 2.5.0.20343

Pros

Easy to install
Stored procedures and triggers
High performance
Belongs to a community, so it can't be sold (like MySQL)
Royalty free even for comercial applications

Cons

I'm glad I don't have anything against Firebird.

Summary

Firebird is invisible to my customer. They don't see it being installed and running. Until 10 workstations I allow my customer use it on a non-dedicated server, many times without a no-break. I trust in Firebird. Firebird rocks.

"Up quickly, solid performance, and great support forums"

January 13, 2009  |  By FederOnline

 |  Version: Firebird 2.5.0.20343

Pros

Installing Firebird on any Linux system is simple from a distribution or source.
It is easy to manage and support once installed.
There are solid Open Source project that support it (IBPP C++ Interface, ODBC, ADODB, etc)

Cons

Documentation (other than the Firebird Book and Support Forums) is a bit scattered.
A Wiki would be nice.

Summary

It is free. It works. It is solid. It performs.

I have it working on a 500 MHz Solid State embedded PC and a multi-CPU server with gigs of RAM and disk. It is extremely flexible.

All the things I need to create projects and products to make a living.
