5.0 from scratch - MySQL

I just installed 5.0 and all the new GUI tools (Windows edition). I just used Administrator to create a database table in Test and query browser to insert a record and select it. Wow! MySQL has come a long way!...

    Indeed! I am pretty happy with the "new" GUI tools. Though they aren't
    that new anymore, they've been out for quite a while. Seems that many
    people do not download them, because I frequently see questions about "does
    MySQL have a GUI?" MySQL should probably bundle their GUI tools into their
    Windows binary download.

    Have you also checked out the system tray monitor? It should be installed
    in the Programs folder with MySQL Administrator.

    I wish the curmudgeons on comp.databases would re-evaluate MySQL. There are
    several regulars on that newsgroup who turn up their noses at the "toy
    database." But I think they are basing their opinions on a very old
    release, probably 3.23.

    Regards,

    Exactly. Just reading this newsgroup, I see many are still asking the
    old "how do I set up a root password and add a new user" question --
    which is managed easily with the Admin tools.

    I am running it, and it's how I launch the adminstrator and the query tool.

    Yes! They don't even realize that it has stored procedures.

    And now, mySql is the only database with load balancing for clusters
    (yes, read the fine print -- Sql Server still can't do clusters for load
    balancing!)

    Except that most of the "toy database" comments that I've seen have more
    to do with using MyISAM as a back end. No transactions and only
    table-level locks are show stoppers for any multiuser system.

    But yes, with InnoDB, it's wonderful.
