Forget MySQL.... Use the champers to celebrate something better, like FB
V2.0 release.....

Firebird, and this is a Firebird group, is best to go after marketing
it's advantages:

It runs on Windows, Linux and a bunch of Unices.
It runs well, out of the box, without a lot of configuring.
It has an excellent transactional ability.
It is highly programmable.
It has a small footprint.
etc, etc, etc, (ad nausium).

Who, wants to use Firebird, developers, because it's easy to install
Firebird with your application, without needing to worry about whether
you have purchased enough licences.

If we spend all our time worrying about the competition, we quit
spending our time, doing our own development.
