Too far off-topic for here. This list is for FIREBIRD support (and old IB
versions, at a pinch). Nexus is a totally different, commercial RDBMS.

IBO works with Firebird and InterBase because it wraps the Firebird/IB
APIs. It's not a generic data access interface by any stretch.

I understand Nexus distribute their own drivers for Delphi (ADO, DBX, .Net).

Yep; but in future don't try to [ab]use this list looking for views about
other DB engines. It's not what this list is about. There are various
usenet groups that cover such topics. Try Googling.
