"It's knowing
what to do with it once it's installed that counts." Or what to do when it DOESN'T install or the GUI is broke.  When I install Oracle on the OpenVMS server I will have a choice of GUI or character. Not much of a decision there.  In the past when I was attending the Oracle and HP classes, the instructor would attempt to teach the GUI. I raised the issue that you need to understand the character method first to understand what is going on and what to do if the GUI didn't work. They understood back then and we were tought both methods.

Me? I miss Character mode Forms 3.

Once you know the form layout for an app, you can really fly through the screens. The 'user friendly' GUI's often do nothing but slow you down.

I *really* miss CASE 5. :)

Cross Platform: That's what Perl is for. Moving from the character mode installer was one of the stupider things I've seen in Oracle's attempts to "Keep up with the Jone's".

So what it SQL*Server has a pretty GUI and push buttons and is so simple a moronic PHB could install it. It's knowing what to do with it once it's installed that counts.

Nice, I wish I have some technical people around to install Oracle for me. Is that Windows or Unix platform? Do they also install patches too? And install OPS/RAC? They must be very technical then. Good for you, but for the rest of us, we have to do it ourselves.

Ever install Oracle at work from home over dialup? Took so long just to draw the initial screens. Man I miss character mode installer.
