GUI interfaces for MySQL

MySQL expert Scott Noyes recommends several resources for finding a MySQL GUI.

I am a starter for MySQL 5.0 for Win2000. MySQL 5.0 showed a DOS-type interface. Is there a GUI/IDE interface for MySQL like we have for Microsoft SQL Server and most other Windows packages?

There are several GUI interfaces to MySQL. Some are free under GPL; others require purchase of a per-user license.

Official products from the company include MySQL Query Browser and MySQL Administrator are available for free download here.

A popular Web interface is phpMyAdmin. See also DBDesigner, SQLFront and SQLyog.
