I mentioned both Postgres and Firebird, but I actually voted for Firebird;-) I've been using Firebird/Interbase since 2000 when Borland was gracious enough to release the source code.

I hope you're wrong about the posting only for Firebird votes. People who are using Firebird know what they're doing. So I would think they would be the types who would have *much* to contribute to the community;-)

Still, it's nice that it sparked an interest in people signing up to LQ. Whatever gets more people involved is good. There are so *many* questions to be answered here and not enough people to answer them! Thanks Tinkster and other Moderators for all your hard work answering questions and making this a great place to come for help!

Thumbs up

MySQL is simply wow!! because it fulfills all my requirements and efficiently. PostgreSQL also seems good with more features than MySQL but I've not tried it in production environment

Oracle is fat database, with morbidly obese administration tools.

Firebird looks promising, MySQL is good, and even Ingres is back again in Open Source turf. But from where I stand PostgreSQL looks best.

At last, some people have noticed that there's a very powerful, standard compliant and great Open Source DBMS called PostgreSQL (Postgres). I feel happy for them I put my money on PostgresSQL.

I wouldn't, on most cases even consider Oracle 'cause it's not FOSS. It's a great DBMS. But FYI, Postgres or even MySQL are no toys

I know, I was just either poorly joking or mildly trolling

At least get the name right :}

It's Postgres or PostgreSQL, not postgre. It USED
to be postgres and a year, and at some stage the community
made the (in my not so humble opinion) silly move to
calling it PostgreSQL, which confused a few people about
both the name and its pronunciation.

It's pronounced postgres-queue-ell, and as far as
I'm concerned the -queue-ell is optional.


Cheers,
Tink
