Give it a try. Classic version for Linux (rpm) fits on a single 2.88 floppy!

Firebird SQL , normally !
It will never let you enter "2003-02-31" as a date in database. Just picky here :-)
I do developement at home on a WinXP WS. Stored procedures and triggers debugging (breakpoints, step, watch variables and parameters, etc) is a nice thing to have.

Just a little correction, the name is "Firebird" not "Firebird SQL".

Right, but I like the SQL at the end, no confusion with Mozilla Firebird.

Hey! Somebody obviously posted this survey on a Firebird (SQL) user list. The survey has been ambushed!

Oh....Wait a minute. That's how I got here to vote for PostgreSQL.

Never mind.

Seems the DB poll will be interesting this year.

It should be noted that the polls will be audited before a winner is determined (ie. votes from users with almost no posts and from the same ip, or in some cases ip blocks, will be removed - so please don't keep signing up to vote multiple times). Thanks.

some good points but...

1. Nothing was said about prerequisite number of posts before voting is allowed.
2. IP matter is a complicated one - many voters could be from the same originating IP because they are students at the same college, employees of the same company etc.

Wow! I better keep posting to reach quota.

But seriously, you've got a cool site here, Jeremy. Wish I'd found it sooner.

I knew nothing of Firebird before coming here. Some of the posts have me researching it to see if it's a better solution for me than PostgreSQL.

PostgreSQL is great, but I don't have a lot of time to commit to maintenance. So, Firebird may be a better fit (if it supports all of my SQL constructs.)

Hi Jeremy. Do you mean:

"votes from (users with almost no posts) will be removed, and votes from (multiple users posting from the same IP) will also be removed"

or:

"votes from (multiple users with almost no posts who are all posting from the same IP) will be removed"

?

Grtz,
The Semantics Kid

(almost no posts, but they're all from the same IP )

Same here, but I am now up to three posts, so I guess it was worth it.
