I must admit I am a convert from the ascii file dbs of the old mv. As such I 
just started reading  a MySQL book to assist my efforts. I installed PHP to 
take advantage of all the nice interfaces to MySQL for admin functions so im 
in no real hurry to change db systems, BUT since I have Oracle available to 
me maybe I should install it and try it out.  Im running on SunUltra/Solaris.

Are the admin features user freindly to an sql novice? 

Thanks for your answers, much appreciated!
