Thank you to those who have posted here and in the wiki with respect to MySQL. I haven't been able to find much specifically about Windows and MySQL. I'm a new device owner, but my music library is bulging. I am abandoning iTunes ASAP, but I have found SQLite to be very slow. Please no suggestions to use Linux, but thank you for your interest. I'm constrained to Windows for the moment.

When I configure my Server Instance, should I choose "Best Support For Multilingualism", in other words the UTF8 character set, or should I choose Latin1?

From what I gather, the SlimServer is trying to embrace UNICODE. I know that I have music by Björk. Should I choose UTF8?

Thanks.
