Subject Firebird vs. PostgreSQL
Author Kjell Rilbe

We've been using Firebird "forever". For upcoming projects and also possible replacement in existing ones, we're considering PostgreSQL.

What would you say is the pros and cons of Firebird vs. PostgreSQL?

I'm aware that the answers may very well be different depending on application and usage patterns, but I would like to start with considerations i general terms, e.g. framework support (e.g. Entity Framework), admin tools availability and usability (Windows and possibly Mac), query performance in general, resource load, SQL standard compliance, stability, development progress (new features, fixing bugs, ...) etc.
