Subject "Borland dropped Interbase"
Author Mark Patterson

This is moer on that longevity of Firebird thread that I started a week or so
ago. The consultant who was uncertain about us relying on Firebird threw in the
comment at the meeting that Borland has stopped development of Interbase. Doesn
anyone know why Borland would give it away? Was it losing them money? I have the
impression that interbase 6.5 is a development since they gave away the code,
which would indicate the opposite. It's a confusing but fascinating picture.
