Me, I came from an MS Access background and joined the fun around the
time 1.5 came out. Good Windows support and simple, small deployment
size won me over (the new 2.5 multi-session embedded system will be a
big win for me)

API docs could be better but there are plenty of libs to smooth that
out, Helen's book covers the other half (SQL, admin) and the support
list is one of the best I've seen.

It's a major shame FB is often forgotten against MySQL and Postgres.
