Opinion : We have been working with Firebird since the first version. With thousands installations around the world, I can say that Firebird works really well. Small footprint, inexpensive, robust and powerful are some adjectives. Our software is delivered by the Internet, so in most cases the user installs and maintains the software. Our products work under different scenarios: embedded, network and web server. We could not afford the calls to tech support if Firebird was not such an excellent database.

Name, Title and Company : The Wine Cellar Book - shareware
Opinion : We are using Firebird SQL since 2003 for our shareware application. Most installations are single user for which we use the embedded engine, we also have some multi user installations which use a full server installation. Being able to develop one code base to be used for both i.e. "simple" single user setup and for a full server setup is a big plus for us. We had started with Firebird SQL version 1.5 and have later upgraded to 2.0, then to 2.1 and are currently using 2.5. In all these years with a few hundred installations we have never encountered any database related problems.
