even if it might be off-topic. but if there is not a very good reason 
for using Firebird, I would not recommend it. We tried to use it in the 
last projects and had a lot of problems.

Not with the database itself, but the development process seems to be 
chaotic and the documentation is extremly bad, support hardly available. 
I expected a lot of it, but now I am pretty dissapointed.

So if there is not any other reason why to use it, take PostgreSQL or 
mySQL. Both are meanwhile also available as Windows versions, which 
might be intersting for development purposes, but the server will 
obviously be Linux, so I can recommend both of them.
