    "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.
