Excellent. Joel's software now works with MySQL in addition to SQL Server. Why he linked to his own content only and not the MySQL home page is beyond me.

Anyway, it's good to see more software adding MySQL support on the back end. There's a lot of interest in moving from Oracle or SQL Server to MySQL to save money. It comes up all the time.

Wouldn't MySQL need to support transactions before you could replace Oracle or MS SQLServer? I thought that was one of the big problems with MySQL?
