What is Firebird?

,----[ Quote ]
| It seems that many people think that Firebird Foundations owns Firebird, 
| makes development strategic/tactic decisions or something like this. This is 
| not real, in fact the Firebird Foundation is an institution to collect 
| donations and sponsors money and grant them to people, related with Firebird 
| development. To understand exactly who is who we need to look at the current 
| situation with Firebird.     


GNU/Linux distributions begin to bundle this good database.
