Re: No Oracle Support for 11g yet

I have been trying unsuccessfully over the past few years to get Oracle to at least make the SRs text searchable. If they would go and add a button so each SR owner could opt to make it public, that would be all the better and then we really could see all those comments. =)

I often wonder who benefits the most from Metalink. Like Robert said, the amount of money we dump into Support sure seems like it is going to waste a lot of times.
And to balance that out with something positive (my glass is half full after all), some of those Support guys are wicked smart, and on the rare occasion you can talk to someone in development, it is practically nirvana. =)
