    "MySQL China?"

    December 9, 2013  |   By eb-coder

    MySQL is one if not the most popualar database software in the world, it is now owned by Oracle Corporation, the publisher of this software is in China. http://bbs.mysql.cn/index.php

    "Excellent RDBMS system!"

    January 14, 2013  |  

    Version: MySQL Database Server 5.1.67

    Pros

    I like MySQL server. You can have it up to date with tools for upgrading and configuring MySQL. Monitoring and adjusting MySQL settings that will tune, scale and maintain performance. In production, you can setting-up and monitor the status of MySQL replication with a simple and easy to use interface.

    Cons

    It shows poor performance when used for Data Warehousing; this is partly due to inability to take advantage of a cluster of CPU cores for processing a single query. Despite all this, this is the preferred database for web developers.

    "Contains Claro!"

    November 14, 2012  |   By CDJorg

    Version: MySQL Database Server 5.1.63

    Pros

    MySQL is good. If that's all that was involved, I would recommend this download.

    Cons

    This download will install the Claro toolbar on all your browsers, and set your homepage to Claro's search engine, even if you tell it not to. I shudder to think what it will do if you actually tell it to install Claro.

    Summary

    Don't download this. Go directly to mysql.com and download the community edition. It will say it wants information from you, but at the bottom of the submit form, you can click a No Thanks button, and download directly, without any AdWare.

    "Easy to Import Oracle, MS SQL, MS Access, Excel or XML into MySQL database."

    November 9, 2007  |   By infodatabase

    Version: MySQL Database Server 5.0.45

    Pros

    After I installed NAVICAT (MySQL GUI), I can import Oracle, MS SQL, MS Access, Excel, CSV, XML or other formats to MySQL very easily. I can even create a schedule to automate the import action.

    Cons

    The free version of Navicat Lite is good but it has no import feature yet.
