Not that easy, IMHO. ;-)

The desktop/server market is a completely different beast compared to
the embedded market. The SQL Server Express has limitations like max.
database size which Firebird does not have, ...

I probably would always go with Firebird than with SQL Server Express
for desktop/server applications, except I need some kind of highly .NET
integrated stuff like stored procedures written in .NET ...
