Hello Dariusz,

> Waiddaminute! Just a week or so ago I, and others, have been informed
here, on this list that FB doesn't compete with MySQL at all.

According to some, yes, not according to all.

> As for "newsworthy"... That particular voting it was newsworthy when FB
lost by only 2 votes to MySQL last year, and by 1 vote to Postgresql a year
before that. You may check this mailing list. There was quite a commotion.

Same here. Last year, it was a nice way of getting "Firebird in the news",
but c'mon, you can hardly say this year the poll has received a vote
from many users that use Firebird, nevertheless, there are many more
users than the couple who voted.

> So what what changed to influence newsworthiness of the poll? It's not
like FB is opting for New York Times front page yet, is it?

Polls like that, are they newsworthy? I don't know, I don't think so.
