Microsoft buffs up its open-source halo to fine sheen with PostgreSQL GUI in Azure Data Studio

It used to be called MS Access

when using MS Access with an ODBC database back in the 90's, for example, you had GUI schema tools available...

(I have yet to really see anything in the open source world that does what MS Access did in its day)

But I'm not going to go out and get MS Office just to have Access again. And Access in Office '97 broke when I installed a patch for MS Word. Totally screwed up. I use Libre and/or Open Office now, and haven't seen a good MS Access equivalent there.
