I don't think that it is Firebird. Microsoft bought Navision in 2002,
and Navision bought Axapta in 2000. So, it could be hard to believe
that it's a modified Firebird, unless they made a lot of modifications
and had no intentions to make them public. The only way to make sure
of that would be to examine the fdb file that it is using. Navision
was a Danish company, so anybody from that area(or Europe) might have
more information on the product, and maybe the company. And, Navision
apparently had a lot of employees(approx. 1000).
