I use FB with VisualC++ at the moment, I was introduced to it, via
looking for a good but inexpensive database that runs on a number of
platforms, and has good support. O/S certainly qualifies as
inexpensive, and you can't beat the support right here. It runs on
most of the required platforms NT, Linux, Solaris, etc. It would be
nice if FB could run on NetWare, but you can't have everything.
