Martijn,

Sorry, skipped right past the fact he was asking about SQLServer
Express, however I consider 'Express' to be the MSDE of SQLServer 2k5,
with a few higher limits. However consider that SQLServer Express is 1.)
Not a shipping product (it's in Beta), and 2.) Requires the .Net
framework version 2.0 to be installed (which is _also_ a beta), which
(in my opinion) makes it not suitable for an ISV to look at _yet_.

Sorry, just fell into 'vernacular', mostly because their website is
'www.firebirdsql.org' :p
