Re: Why MySql isn't as good as MSDE - 08-14-2004 , 08:18 PM
I am using a MYSQL Database with VB.NET for a CRM database. No problems
yet... Still in development. But multi-user (so far 2) seems to work ok.
I do need to work on stored procedures and stuff (learning I mean) as I
write everything into my code currently.

I've been trying to migrate away from SqlServer2000 a bit because even thou
I love it, and I own it from a developers point of view, it just isn't light
weight enough for me.
Solution: I thought, MySql, i'll give that a shot with C# see how it goes.
Now MySql is great dont get me wrong, but from a Engineers point of view, it
isn't full database. Its a toy database for hacking away at. Stored
Procedures are only just coming out with alpha 5! Triggers not till 5.1.
Now if your writing an application beyond the toy "hello world" I personally
feel that even if your only using a simple blogger, you should still be
using stored procedures to do everything. Pre-compiled SQL runs alot faster,
and if you've got multiple users hitting your site, sending a command string
each time is really a waste of resources.
MSDE is microsofts gift to those who can use SqlServer imho, and with VS.Net
you've got _THE_ perfect interface, also DbaMGR2k is good, but if you've got
VS.Net 2003 just use the server explorer - all one integrated solution which
is why I'll never leave MS products regardless of flaws - because when using
FOSS I get flaws, and bugs and a lesser implementation but when i get a tad
frustrated at it i get told "its free, dont complain". Well, MSDE is free -
and it can do everything and more.
personally, the only thing I think that could be added to it, is a free
stand alone interface to MSDE that is a little more responsive the DbaMGR.
But for those deciding what DB to use, i strongly suggest just leave MySql
alone if your able and stick with MSDE.
P.S - I dont work for MS either, its just i read about how bad this and that
is about MS, but from a software engineers view, they've got my vote!
