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 – MySQL 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.
