Subject Re: [IBDI] About IBX and Firebird
Author Ed Malloy
Hi Alfonso,

IMHO the ease of use & reliability of IBX outweighs any possible advantages of using Firebird instead of Interbase. My experience with IBO was not a happy one, buggy, buggy, buggy, with tons of "features" that I didn't need and continual updates to fix bugs in the components I did use (gee, sort of sounds like an unnamed nw US software company, doesn't it!).
