I'm wondering, have they seriously analyzed the cost of this move? Licensing of Oracle might be expensive but the cost of a conversion of this magnitude...
Look at it as an opportunity. As much as I hate SQL Server, if you go that route, it will be good experience.

Company I work for just announced that we're going to convert all but 2 of our 89 Oracle databases to either SQL Server, MYSQL, or PostgreSQL. This is due to the high licensing cost. I'm bummed.
