Evans Data research survey of databases includes Firebird, for once. Firebird is listed under "What Open Source database are you using?" but appears not to rate with MySQL, MaxDB, PostgreSQL, Progress, et al., under these two: "Which of the following server database products do you work with?" and "Which database product do you use to do MOST of your programming?" Oh well.... Everyone who completes a survey is automatically entered into a draw to win $500.00 US.
