Playing with the Firebird Database – Blog of the day
In my last blog entry reguarding the rumored SunDB I immediately discounted the Firebird Database as a contender. In the comments posted to that entry it was suggested that Firebird shouldn’t be so quickly discarded and may even be a “diamond in the rough”. Well, if I’m wrong I’m willing to explore it and admit that I’m wrong if thats the case, afterall, what if Firebird really that great? I certainly don’t want to miss out on a good thing. So thanks to Gentoo I quickly emerged Firebird 1.5.2 and started playing.
