on Firebird



NewsForge points to a Linux World Australia article about Firebird:

When you think of open source databases, MySQL or PostgreSQL may first spring to mind. However, hot on their heels is Firebird, a relational database which has been a hotbed of development activity for the past two and a half years.

Although a worldwide development effort, Firebird does have an Australian flavour: the FirebirdSQL Foundation (Inc.), an international non-profit organisation, was formed in New South Wales late last year. To discuss the Foundation and the development project, LinuxWorld talked to Helen Borrie, a Firebird project admin and documenter who is based in the Central Coast.
