Subject 9.23.02 Infoworld testcenter open source database analysis
Author Rob Schuff
Dear Ms Biggs,

I just finished reading your article in the 09.23.02 issue of Infoworld
titled "Finding an Opening". I am curious why there was no mention of
Firebird (formerly InterBase see in the
open source database comparison. Firebird seems to be almost completely
ignored by the press and is certainly very capable in a wide array of
situations. The Firebird community is broad-based, energetic, and
enthusiastic. Firebird is continually developed and enhanced.

I am writing not to criticize the omission but out of pure curiosity as to
the nature of Firebird omissions in such comparisons.
