Each has his preferences, I won't try to convince anyone otherwise.

But on idefix - or www.freepascal.org, which is located at my work place - 
the matter is not subject to debate. It's firebird or nothing.

Note that the lazarus website is not on Idefix, and that this condition
is only relevant if the FPC website is overhauled using the same tool - 
a matter which still is subject to debate :-)
