This looks promising, i will look forward to the windows version, but the MacOSX as a first supported platform seems a bit odd, I used to think most DBA worked under Windows/Linux.

I guess it depends on how you define a DBA. Surely macOS is huge among web developers, and since most non-trivial web applications interface with a database, web developers have to install and maintain DBMS systems and create and interact with databases. Does that make them DBAs too? Arguably so.


This may be a little controversial, but I think Windows users are more accustomed to less-than-stellar UIs, and are probably less likely to pay $49 for a better UI when they already have something that they're familiar with and works.

As as a SQL Server DBA I preferred to use OSX. Freed me from the tyranny of dogfood.
