40 concurrent connections?
How is this possible at all?

And even if you can make MSDE use 40 connections, then this is illegal,

In my POV, the upcoming MSSQL has a big advantage over firebird: You can
debug stored procedure calls right through from your remote visual studio,
as if it where a local part of your programm. Except of this, firebird is
very good for me and cheap. :D
