Firebird has been *the* name associated with open-source dev. of "that database" all along. All of the existing application developers know it and - at present, dear friends, they are the supporters and customers of the "brand association". The Sourceforge admins know it. The online journos know it.

Firebird will change its name if enough of the ***Firebird*** people want it to.

All this "will" and "must" and "should" is getting irritating. Could this thread be permitted to be a forum of ideas and views on those ideas, instead of a soapbox where one loud voice wants to shout down all the rest? Past experience has shown that this community gets good results from concensus about a good idea. It is not a mass of dunderheads needing a daily hammering to get a point.

If you please...
