thank you Helen,
I thought so! but I had to argue with customers who are "informed"
as customers have to be nowadays and how it is written in tons of
books like "beeing a customer in a nutshell" ;-))

that´s a very major problem of interbase: lot´s of knowledge is
out there about visual basic, ASP, PHP, Winword, Access, MS-SQL
no computer magazine has featured interbase as desktop database
of the month. but MS Access was several times.
it is hard to explain certain customers why I am using interbase then
instead of Access :-(( especially hard when it comes to technical details
and they say that they are not interested in details...
