Well, I think that I can raise somewhat more than half a cheer for my oracle support. It seems to me that it offers improvements in the following areas. Configuration management - you wouldn't have got any of the system health stuff in the old version. Search - the search engine is still as embarrassing as ever, but at least search refinement actually works, so you can exclude all the rdb stuff! Personalization - not the greatest still, but a big improvement. Its also of course the case that oracle support does not just deal with dba types - in fact we may well be in a minority since every functional apps person I've ever net seems to have to log an sr a week! I'm sure that i'm not the only one hoping that the server os's mentioned in this thread aren't really servers being used for web browsing, and finding it hard to believe that they are also used as clients of the corporate mail system. Oh and finally, for once oracle consulted well and actually asked about flash when trialing mos, it isn't unreasonable to assume that the results were positive.
