Subject RE: diverted :: Why Red Hat didnt got IB instead of PostGreSQL ?
Author Gerhardus Geldenhuis by way of Helen Bo
Is that not a bit of a short term vision. I think Firebird is a
better database and the fact that firebird is on sourceforge should
saveguard against any problems consering these battles. Should a
company not choose on the basis of performance/specs rather than
on ownership/lackof ?
Btw Name recognition would come much slower without such decisions
in our favor.
