which makes it a great choice:
"Really free:: contraty to MySQL, you can use Firebird in your
commercial applications without any fee or legal problem. (BTW: I
know that PostgreSQL have this advantage too)
"All the basic features of large RDBMS:: stored procedures,
triggers, A.C.I.D. compliance, online backup, generators,
referential integrity, etc...
"Small footprint: had you seen its embeddable version? Just

one without cutting anything!
"Low hardware requirements: basically, if something computes, it
can run Firebird.
"Available in all the major OS platforms: Linux, Windows, Mac
OS, Solaris and others"
