FlameRobin - why? part 3

Those particular wheels don't work in Linux, Mac OS X, ...

All of those you mentioned are way too bloated for my taste.

Don't be sorry to say it. Not that your personal opinion matters that
much to me. But anyway, if half of those giving others good advise on
what they should invest their time into - and what not - would
*themselves* help any project to improve, OSS would be unstoppable indeed...

Well, you've got a point there. Why reinvent the wheel? Why write other browsers than Internet Explorer, why write other operating systems than Windows, why write anything? Just use what's on the market.
Have you EVER heard of evolution? We're not reinventing the wheel, we're just writing something new, we're trying to make a difference. And, if you're asking me, this is OUR way "to push the Firebird project".

Congratulations, I´m using Flamerobin everyday and it´s great, very easy to use and fast. For me it´s more productive than any other bdadmin tool for everyday work.
