View as plain text  
I think you will find that Oracle offers free DEVELOPER copies of at
least some of their products.

You still need to pay for it to actually use it in a production
environment.

So nothing has changed!  i.e. Oracle is not Free (for production
environments).

Cheers



Tim

Here's a couple I've dug up:

http://biz.yahoo.com/prnews/020117/sfth035_1.html
http://www.devx.com/judgingjava/articles/javaone/report2.asp (Flat out
SAYS ORACLE IS FREE!)

And of course, let's not forget
http://www.oracle.com (Just go to downloads, register your info and try
downloading ANYTHING)


I PROMISE YOU, oh non believers, that you'll believe me after you read
those articles, and then try downloading 9i from Oracle. You don't even
have to download it, just start it and watch it go! Cheers, VJ MPZ

Just curious what everyone thinks the impact on MySQL will be now that
Oracle is free?
