I saw that yesterday. It's not too surprising, but there are so many factors
to consider. It very much depends on what tests you run and under which
conditions (scale, specs)... SourceForge's 2006 award for databases (IIRC
that was indeed the category), Firebird was a runner-up. It's not a project
to ignore either... choice is great and the new servers of my Web hosts
provide choices other than MySQL, which I think is great. Same price ($0),
different tradeoffs in performance (and maybe even security). Because of the
layered approach of the stack and owing to standards, they should be also
interchangeable (to a degree).
