Subject Firebird vs Postgres

How does Firebird compare to Postgresql?
I have downloaded both database systems and would like to know
the advantages and disadvantages of both.
I read somewhere on the internet that Postgres needs vast amounts of
ram for big databases. A friend of mine says that he runs 30gb
databases on entry level pc's. The reason why I want to compare the
two is because they are the only databasis that are 100% open source
and free for commercial use. From what I could gather it looks like
Postgresql comes with quite a good and free database administration
tool. It seems however that FlameRobin is very basic and is still in
0.75 release.
