Having used both I couldn't imagine going back to BASE.  There are many useful improvements to ACID (thanks for all your hard work on ACID, Roman!) in the BASE product (and thanks for all your work, Kevin and team!) that I consider useful.  Here's two right off the top:
     1. It's way faster
     2. It allows you to flip between the current and archive databases, meaning
         I don't need two side-by-side installs of the application.

Hope this helps.
