Subject Firebird or MySQL?
Author frdtheman

To build a commercial product, I need an open-source, C/S DBMS that has the following requirements:
- the server must be available for Linux and XP/Vista
- the DBMS must be reachable from PHP/Python scripts and Delphi200x

At first sight, Firebird seems a better option because using MySQL would require buying a license, which would increase the cost to customers.

If you are well experienced with Firebird, can you confirm that it matches the above requirements? Otherwise, are there alternatives I should look at instead?

Thank you.
