If there are no issues with Solaris on Intel, I would be enclined to prefer that to LINUX or NT.

Just an opinion, and I haven't worked with Oracle on Solaris for Intel, but it sounds good to me!

        Patrice:

        Oracle for Solaris x86 has been out for a while.  I am running it on
one of my
        machines at home.  It's Oracle!  It's Solaris!  It's Intel (AMD in
my case)!
        It's a 3-in-1 wonder toy!  ;-)

        Seriously, take a look at http://store.oracle.com under the "CD
Packs" area.
        There will be one for "Sun Solaris Intel".
