Steve Naidamast: "I just downloaded your new offering of AnySQL Maestro. What a nice product. I was immediately able to connect to an Access database to review the data.

I have already purchased from you your Oracle Maestro as well as your SQLite Maestro.

I am curious as to why you have decided to release such a nice product as Freeware...

Keep up the excellent work".
Ingo Bindbeutel: "I did buy Firebird Maestro before, because it is an excellent application and does a very very good work for me! I tried AnySQL and I did buy it, because it's a wonderful application too! Both are similar to use and easy to work with it! I am impressed by the quality and stability of the product! To all members of the SQL Maestro - Team: "keep going this way and make many people happy in using your software!" Thank you for making my life easier and my work productive".
