Subject:RE: MySQL as a desktop DB
View as plain text  
I use MySQL as a desktop db. It is alot faster than access, and much more
efficient. A great front end I use is phpMyAdmin.

www.phpMyAdmin.org

I think MySQL will be more faster in Desktop environment and if you are
adverse to using the text based interface to MySQL then you can try out some
GUI avaiable in the market. The best I know are MySQL-Front and SQLyog but
since MySQL-Front has been discontinued you can try SQLyog at
http://www.webyog.com/sqlyog
