there don't exist much where you are really faster with a GUI except you don't know how to handle things - what worries me more is a database server which is even open over TCP to the network

The expected answer, heard the same thing over and over in the past on endless products. Yes, DOS really was great. :-) Of course, the database is no more open than your command line technique since it’s using an ssh tunnel (and thus only access is localhost) and likely you use ssh also for command line access. Unless you are local and the servers are not in a datacenter, which has it’s own set of troubles. Just keep in mind not everyone works in a huge company (I have). There are numerous customers out there running small businesses on open source and they are not up to the level of most people here to say the least. For them, a free admin product is a good thing. Control panel type “admin” systems are awful for the most part

i don't buy that just because i don't work in a huge company, come from windows, started just as php developer and over the years took over the whole administration, ported the whole company from OSX to Linux and guess what the previous OSX "sysadmin" was: a clickmonkey

from 2003 to 2008 i learned all the needed things autodidact to took over the whole technical from database, web, mail, network, virtualization, nameservers and what not

what i never missed was a desktop GUI for a mysql server....
