How can you possibly make a statement like this:

The relation is historical, at various levels, but it's historical only. The two
products are certainly very similar, but they have different origins: InterBase is

The do not have different "origins", Their "origin" is the same in that Fire bird is
the open source IBC which "has been modified?".
