Talking Firebird as always

Even postgresql developers prefer it over the mysql

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

Firebird. Seriously. MySQL is not a database.

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...
