Tag Archives: HeidiSQL

A colleague of mine, and I were conversing about the benefits of MS-SQL over MySQL. One of them is the SSMS, which makes database management and query programming very easy. Then he pointed me to HeidiSQL РMySQL made easy. And it looks beautiful! Gonna look into that later today.

Update: having browsed their site a bit, it looks like a very nice tool, and might be a good replacement/enhancement for the MySQL Administrator tool. My biggest problem however, is that it’s made in Delphi, and therefore only really works in Windows. I would love to use a great management tool, open source (better yet: Free Software) under GNU/Linux. Anyone have another idea? I still haven’t really decided on a platform to use: both MySQL and PostgreSQL look like pretty nice candidates.
