The "Storage engines" section in "Notes about supported databases" ( says unconditionally that MyISAM is the default storage engine for MySQL 5.0. This is not so, at least for MySQL 5.0 installed with the Windows Essentials installer (see; my experience confirms the MySQL doc's statement for the Community Server install.

I'm not sure what the second link in the description is meant to be pointing to (we already know what InnoDB) is. This seems to be a case of once again we get screwed around by Windows-related stuff. I'll add a note saying something like "unless you're installation package has altered this", since we can't try and track every single third-party installer and whatever local modifications they may make. The default with MySQL 5.x is still to use MyIsam for the storage engine.

(In [9143]) Fixed #8964 -- Added a note that MyISAM may not necessarily be the default
storage engine for MySQL. Some packagers seem to like causing confusion.
