This my quote of the day :(
but we have to keep the faith
traffic rank for firebirdnews and is growing and we
still have to improve the website

another thing to consider is mysql world is full of forks and this
will help us and postgresql in the long term
the picture is getting very confusing : rds, mariadb ,drizzle , falcon
(dead), percona , google (patches), facebook (patches)
oracle vs EU and microsoft fundation ... they are in deep muddy waters
their documentation is propietary ...
our ducumentation is getting better :P

yes also seems that amazon prices are getting lower and is quite easy
today to create a full server with a click or automated
also preinstalled with FLAPS , firebird linux apache/nginx php/ruby/python ...

That is what will kill Microsoft cheap databases like firebird ,
cheap clouds made of ubuntu (amazon ec2 or eucalyptus)

ps: did i forgot to tell you that they have increased the prices for mssql
