I just saw this, while checking out this thread. MySQL Workbench is out as an early alpha right now (ie. still has lots of changes coming). I don't know when it will go GA. If you are interested, I would recommend you that you check out http://forums.mysql.com/list.php?113 which is a forum dedicated to it. When it goes GA, I'm sure we will have an official press release and all that fun stuff, so you should hear about it.

Try to use PostgreSQL Gui Admin Tool - Navicat (support Access to MySQL). It's very powerful and easy-to-use tool.
You can download the trial version form

For those pining after MySQLFront...
It has returned under the name "HeidiSQL".
Not sure this belongs in this forum, but since I was ecstatic to find it, I thought others might feel the same.

Here's some useful database admin tools for MySQL Server:
MySQL Maestro and MySQL Data Wizard. You can find them on: sqlmaestro.com
Both of them easy in use and have graphical user interface. Not bad solution for developer.

It's been mentioned before but DBDesigner is a great tool when you have to design databases for medium and big projects. It makes it so much more organized. Even though it doesn't supports mysql 5, it's still great for data modelling and the sql generated works in mysql 5 for as far as i know.
I have just used it for my first big project and i will keep using it untill MySQL Workbench comes out (expected in the third quarter of 2007). I have tried the alpha realease and it looks very promising so definately keep an eye out for it.
And the best part: their both FREE!
DeZign for databases is a good alternative to DBDesigner, it has a nice clean interface and support for Mysql 5. But it's not free.

Note that DBDesigner is abandoned you should look at MySQL Workbench it comes from the DBDesigner team and supports MySQL 5

As a first week SQL user, I looked through these. The first one (from the quote) gives a 404 error.

Turns out W3schools has nothing to do with the real W3 and is in fact full of errors.

I just started learning MySQL from tutorials around web, but I also want to buy 1-2 books, maybe will help me learn easier and faster. Any recommendations?

Rudy's (r937) book is quite good - see his signature in post a couple above this.
The moon on the one hand, the dawn on the other:
The moon is my sister, the dawn is my brother.
The moon on my left and the dawn on my right.
My brother, good morning: my sister, good night.
