Subject Re: [ib-support] MySQL vs Firebird - the slow decay
Author Artur Anjos
Hi Andrew,

I don't have that feeling about MySQL, but I don't do web apps. Oracle and
M$ SQL are the one's that I have as competitors.

But I agree with you about "that" feeling. But the reasons are different:

- I don't have the feeling that Firebird lacks developers. They are just a
few, but they are really good. My feeling is that we have a good development
team, and we don't have a team dedicated to the "other part of the story":

Why we don't like IBDI? We should be there discussing this. We should be
there creating a group for this problem, working on it. Firebird does not
need more developers: Firebird needs a 'Firebird Users Group'.

Oh yeah. But we all are a group of high-tech developers looking at features,
small bugs, optimizing, ..., all that stuff that putted MySQL on the top of
the Open Source RDBMS, wasn't it?

It's up to you, me, and other thousands of Firebird users to make it happen.
And that should happen in IBDI, before Helen kick us out of here.
