Does anyone have experience with BOTH Firebird and PostgreSQL?


Hello:

If you were going to build a web site where people were going to enter very detailed information about their golf games (each game, each hole, each lie, each shot, each club, each outcome, etc) and then generate statistical information, which database would be the best choice, based one your experience?

Thanks,

I am afraid that your chances of finding anyone with in-depth
knowledge of both RDBMS systems are fairly remote. I personally
only know Postgres well enough (found firebird incredibly hard
to install on Slackware in the past), and with your request for
statistical analysis would recommend it, given that it can use
R (Pl/R) as a procedural language.



Cheers,
Tink
