C# Express and Firebird

HI all,

Trying to get some folks familiar with C#. They have downloaded the express
edition. Theses guys are used to firebird.
My question is, Are the express editions able to work with databases outsite
of MSSQL such as firebird.

Thanks
Robert

As long as you have a suitable provider, then yes. The IDE might not
necessarily give you as much support, but the runtime should be fine.
Some quick search results yield:

Yes.

Download and install ADO.NET provider from
http://www.firebirdsql.org/dotnetfir...oad/index.html,
make a ref to FirebirdSql.Data.Firebird.dll and
start coding with FbConnection etc..
