    Currently Microsoft Windows is not a supported platform by Percona Server. This will be addressed in a future but not in the short-term.

  2. Bret Ferrier says

    Looking everywhere I see mention in the instructions of how to install using Windows .msi but I can not find a Windows .msi to download. Am I just looking in the wrong places?

  3. Rodrigo Gadea says

    Percona Server 5.5.12 is based on MySQL 5.5.12, so you should expect all the improvements of MySQL 5.5 plus the features and improvements from Percona Server.

    Since Mysql 5.5 has a lot of performance improvement, what the advantage of Percona Server 5.5.12? I can’t find any latest documents or data to say that.
