Couple of clients had some software that uses firebird as back end, developed a few quick inquiry apps for them. (One is not even on the latest version of fb to make it even more fun - even less features.)

It's not a choice I would make as I agree that it's got an immature feel about it; sad really coz fb is actually quite a few years old but still lacks a lot of basic features, types and functions, many face-palms later can get around with what's there, but then found the numeric float/double precision is something to be really wary of: had to resort to using fixed digit decimal (store as int and use * / 10000) as even at 4 decimal places the accuracy was shocking.

- But I guess that's ANSI: always needs use twice the work/code to get things done.

Luckily .Net connector works well enough - as long as you stay away from blobs.
Sin tack ear lol
