I use IB/FB for some years and in some dozens sites (clients), I have no
problem with it.

I know that are people that uses RC in production systems and said that
have no problems, but I prefer just to stick with 1.0.3 until final release
get out to put it on production. I am using version 1.5 RC8 on development
on WinXP (my notebook) and on Linux RedHat 8 my server and have no problems
so far.

If you are having problems with FB 1.5 RC 8 on windows why don't you use
1.0.3 for the production and wait for the final release ? There is
something on 1.0.3 that prevents your use ?

Clients will always be impatient with anything that does not work as
expected is your fault or not, is if he is paying for it or if he get it
for free (as in beer) ;-)

see you !
