I struggled for days trying to get Sql explorer 2005 express to work
with Visual Studio 2005 in vain. I downloaded MySQL and its ODBC
driver, and I was up and running in 1 hour!!!

It has everything, sql, procedural language, easy to read documentation
on the Web. Great command line tools. Configurable...configurations...

I haven't felt that good about a product since the first inception of
Sybase in 1994!

Then you must be reading the wrong history :) shows that:

1984 -        Sybase founded by Mark Hoffman and Bob Epstein out of Mr. Epstein's
home in Berkeley, CA.
1988 -     Sybase is first to market with client/server relational database.

Well..since Sybase was discovered as an alternative to Oracle by a
large Canadian software firm (CGI for that matter).

We're always 10 years behind the US... :(
