Surprising but encouraging news for the best open source database, PostgreSQL.

Looks like somebody rallied the entire Firebird community. :)

Yes, and some of them voted twice!

Does one detect sour grapes?

The type of person you tend to come across in the Firebird community is *NOT* among the types that would 'vote twice' to influence the result of competitions of this nature.

Postgresql really is the best :-)
Also check out http://www.amsoftwaredesign.com for a great commercial GUI admin program for Postgresql and MySQL

It is silly of anyone to vote twice for these things. But who is to say that the Postgres people didn't vote twice? Whenever Firebird comes out on top we hear this claim. Some people are just sad losers. Perhaps those claiming ballot-stuffing just don't realise how huge the Firebird user base is inside Brazil and eastern European countries.

You can add South Africa to that list of Firebird user base!

Microsoft Access. :)

I think Progress must have some "friends" out there too.
I spent about 10 years with Progress, some times bleeding, but newer more than acceptable.

I´m one of this friends...
