Microsoft Access killer : LibreOffice Base + Firebird
* SQLite vs. HSQLDB for base (Lionel)
+ SQLite very sloppy typing can cause serious problems cf.
+ no date/time datatype.
=> perhaps not a good idea to switch to sqlite longer term
+ without tons of special casing, get lots of
nasty bugs outside string, float
+ a new candidate with sane licensing, sane language,
and code size required – thinking ongoing.
+ our best shot might be firebird
+ MPL license variant
+ feature set looks good
Update : Firebird Driver and Embedded version merged and integreated into LibreOffice git master
