We write code because is fun and is good to learn something new.
Thouse tools are for money and don't work on all platforms :linux,os-x,
bsd, solaris .From what i know.

The same was said about linux and look at it now , On servers nothing
can beat it (check top500 of supercomputers). And is ready for desktop
fight too (take a look at ubuntu, or mandriva)

I invest my time in learning firebird code too , and for c++ development
flamerobin source code is a better starting place to play with.
Firebird needs an crossplatform administration tool (open source)

like postgresql have it http://www.pgadmin.org/ also mysql is working
for one http://www.mysql.com/products/query-browser/
