From a quick glance at the article, I see only microsoft windows screenshots, so i lost interest pretty quickly as we are not a windows shop and have no plan to become one. Just out of curiosity, are these tools available for linux or not?

    They're absolutely available on Linux, as well as pretty much any other Unix-like platform. Ruby itself is developed mostly on Linux, while Rails is largely developed on OS X. If anything, Windows is an afterthought.

    Your quick glance was a might too quick :)

    The author actually dealt with the issue you raise, with perhaps the sole exception being MySQL-Front which is in fact a Windows product.

    However, you have but to reach out and choose from one of a thousand MySQL front ends under *NIX.

    As to the rest of the tools, of course they run on UNIX. Ruby is a cross platform programming language. In point of fact the author takes pains to mention discrepancies between the Windows version he details and UNIX.
