While writing a bulletin board which I was going to use with
postgresql,interbase and sybase I found a few things interbase lacked.

Interbase -
- no "CASE" for sql queries
- 32k row limit for char datatypes.
- lot fewer datatypes
- less functions in general
- no LIMIT for sql queris

Postgresql seems to be developing faster than Interbase. Interbase split
into interbase and firebird which must be slowing it's development with
the disagreements between the two groups.
