First: I think that fb1.5 is a rocks DB compared to other
freeware/commercial db as mysql or postgree.
Innodb has some problems of stability (IMHO), and mysql is faster for simply
tables with raw access; but when indexes and matching become numerous, then
fb/ib its the winner hands down in speed. Further the fb is the only db
freeware that has so much QA and functionalities (triggers,udf,
view...backup api, events...). It's a miracle have a similar db free. I
think that firebird community need to make a lot advertisement on this gem.

When fb1.5 will be available as final release I can do some detailed
benchmark, but I can't release specs or profiler reports due to IB7
agreement.... :-\
