Increasingly partial to Sqlite, interested in Postgres.

Tinkster 01-12-2009 07:09 PM

postgres, of course ;D

rocket357 01-13-2009 09:41 AM

PostgreSQL all the way.

Firebird as always
 
Even postgresql developers prefer it over the mysql

sqlite has a lot of advantages, particularly for the small, standalone app.

juliosaucedo 01-13-2009 12:17 PM

Firebird of course :)

Firebird too

greymont 01-13-2009 02:02 PM

Firebird three!

ArnoldLayne 01-13-2009 04:18 PM

Firebird. Seriously. MySQL is not a database.

fikret 01-13-2009 06:18 PM

Firebird! Period!

peixedragao 01-13-2009 07:25 PM

Firebird, for sure!

benson.sbc 01-13-2009 07:33 PM

Firebird for sure !

Could be used in closed source apps
Very small footprint
DBA-free
Feature rich
Fast
Reliable
Standard Compliant
Stable

I am sure that if you give it a try you will be surprised, mainly the MySQL guys...
