Hi Manuel, I still don't see a problem in others telling their experiences with certain packages. If someone has just used metabase or has just used adodb then I would like to hear how easy/hard it was to port to another database.

No, Metabase does much more than ADODB. When you do more, eventually things may take a little longer when you do less. This should be obvious. Anyway, if you really care about portability, you're only way out is Metabase. Other abstraction packages were not meant for portability but rather for interface makeup. I think you will be the better judge of that if you try looking at least at each package documentation. It is pointless to ask to people here when most of them only know one or the other package.
