Second this.

Personally I HATE Workbench.
So does everybody else i have ever met who has used both workbench and the old gui tools.

I have .msi's from the old versions so continuing to use them on windows is not a problem, however i have been unable to compile the r14 source on opensuse 11.4 or ubuntu 11.04.

Personally I feel mysql should continue to release gui-tools, and give us, YOUR CUSTOMERS, the choice of whether they want to use a simple, intuitive system, or a ugly, unstable, modelling system.

I do like the idea of workbench (I use Visio for database design), but to FORCE everyone to use it for tasks which have absolutley no need for it seems stupid.

Release the code, and let us continue providing these tools to the people who want them (I'm guessing thats MOST mysql developers tbh)
