 Investigating Firebird with Helen Borrie

"Can you provide an overview of Firebird and its goals?
Firebird has always been open source; it's a fork of a mature commercial database called InterBase. InterBase is an enterprise-level database -- Firebird is the same, but better. You'll find Firebird behind a number of Websites, storing records for telcos, and managing data for point-of-sale systems -- just about anywhere you might find Oracle or SQL Server. The project goal is to replace Oracle and SQL Server in commercial applications."
