RE: so when did you switch from NT to unix for oracle

Hey Joe:  

   I generally switch from NT to Unix when availability becomes a central issue. When you can look at the performance monitor in NT and see that the box is not scaling properly is another cautionary flag. Additionally, people switch when they get frustrated with the installation and update processes for software upgrades.  

  I have, as you do, Oracle on my NT laptop and think that Oracle could do a MUCH BETTER JOB implementing the software. Given that cost is no longer an issue with platform-specific pricing gone, I guess it is a subjective decision when to switch.  

Thank You

A question has been posed to me, when to switch from NT to unix for oracle.  

Is it when the NT box starts getting out of memory issues, number of transactions, size of db?  

just looking for some ball park answers.  

thanks, joe
