Yes, Oracle mode Firebird, or FYRACLE is great!

Just go to www.fyracle.org and read some of published PDF's...

People should read this:

http://www.osnews.com/comment.php?news_id=9272

and this (http://www.newsforge.com/pollBooth.pl?qid=54) clearly says all

Also, Firebird currently beats Ingres on performance: http://opensource.ca.com/projects/in...?b_start:int=0

I voted sqlite even though I mainly use MySQL...

Mostly because I recently discovered it and was really amazed with its simplicity. It's FAST and it stays on top of a single, cross-platform, file. It actually made its way into my code now

Of course its a question of how you use it. But as far as EMBEDDED database goes, sqlite is really awesome

Develop DB2, vote for DB2. If I was doing less enterprise grade stuff I would probably vote MySQL or sqlite.

going to have to go with mySQL in a heartbeat...

i have experience with mySQL and oracle. granted oracle has those nifty self joins when doing complex queries, oracle is just annoying if you want to do some quick editing and sticking to a CLI with mySQL, you can't make use of little short cuts here and there. oracle you gotta do this, then do that, then go back to where you were and start all over again...

plus isn't mySQL open source to begin with which just makes it better?

Hi.....!
Having worked on Oracle from ver6.0, on various platforms, I should say that there is no better database than Oracle.

Oracle, whatever be the version, gets my vote.!
