Tony is known to be a PostgreSQL advocat, like we are for Firebird. He
also develops an admin tool for PostgreSQL.

Both products have their strength and weakness. PostgreSQL is more close
to the big ones when it comes to supporting concepts like table spaces,
schemata and such. Pretty new in PostgreSQL is the two-phase commit
protocol, but AFAIK PostgreSQL doesn't support the isolation level

Firebird? We all know why we like it. ;-)

A bit-outdated (one year old), but the following might be of interest.
