Subject main differences FB / MySQL
Author lysander_fb
I will be holding a session for (former) dBase-users about how to
change their applications to using Firebird instead. In the same
meeting somebody will be presenting MySQL as an alternative.

We will not be talking about internet-access but about backend
database servers for business use in small and medium companies.

Unquestioningly Firebird is more suitable for such a scenario than the
very popular MySQL.
I am at a loss, however, in pinning down the main differences in
architecture and usability between the two systems.
AFAIK MySQL does not support triggers, transactions and version
control, but I am amiss about the details.

Can somebody here help me out with a list of facts and arguments or
point me to a source in the web?
