If you're content being left behind for a time then the one-offs exist to make stable and usable. And if you do hit a production bug and a patch already exists for another port then Oracle will have to supply a pretty good reason why they can't port the patch. I've also recently had within the week turnaround on getting other patches released in "anticipation" of bugs we hadn't hit yet.

But, it is a small community compared to some of the others. I actually met *another* person in Sydney using 10gR2 on SolX86-64 just yesterday!
