Subject Citing Firebird's popularity
Author Myles Wakeham
I'm working on a proposal with a government client in the USA, that has a
strong philosphy for open source software. This is great, as it mimicks our
company's direction. However their main IT shop is more 'comfortable' with
MySQL for some reason, and when we stated we are a Firebird shop we got a
bit of reluctance from them.

I would like to cite some 3rd party polls that show Firebird popularity in
the open source community, and ideally some independent comparisons between
MySQL & Firebird on performance, feature set, reliability and rugged
performance. It would also be helpful to cite any testimonials that large
organizations have in regards to Firebird (ie. Where its being used, case
studies, etc.).

Is there any form of a central repository for this kind of information that
I can use in proposals, etc.?
