Not that I want you to switch from the awesome FPC compiler and the
Object Pascal language, but look at the following links.


Firebird (using the standard "cheap" edition)
Alternatively you can use ODBC (unix and windows) as far as I understand.

Just because it isn't included as standard doesn't mean anything. Many
Delphi developers use 3rd party (specialised) DB connection components
instead of the stock ones.
