Would you use 9.0? or 10.1? for productive environments. They are both EOL, and a lot buggyer than 9.2 and 10.2 respectiveley. Besides, this is the client we are talking about, so new features matter little. And initial Release of 11g R2 would be a bad choice as well, I'd wait at least until the first patchset has been properly tested.

One other thing, how many actual productive environments with 11g (11.1.06 or do you know? how many bugs do you reckon are yet to be found? would you like to have you payroll database crash because of one of these bugs on the 29th?

On the other hand, I do have some non-critical internal-use systems running 11g ( with apex 3.2 and they work flawlessly... and even they I have a working version on 10gR2 as a backup (on a different virtual machine, obviously).
