We are in the process of switching from pervasive to postgresql for 
performance reasons. We have a 70k record table that takes *10 MINUTES* 
to do a "SELECT COUNT(col) FROM table WHERE col2 = X" when col2 is 
indexed. I have also noticed a very quick and steady decrease in 
performance doing "SELECT COUNT(col) FROM table", *no where clause*, as 
records are added.

My advice is to move from pervasive as fast as you can :)
