Looking at the new installer graphics, looks like the art department have been playing too much Gears of War on their consoles too!

Wow - I think somebody let the marketing guys get a hold of that one!
Oracle Database 11g Release 2, the second release of the award winning Oracle
Database 11g, provides the foundation for IT professionals to successfully deliver more
information with higher quality of service, make more efficient use of their budgets, and
reduce the risk of change in data centers. By deploying Oracle Database 11g Release 2
as their data management foundation, organizations can utilize the full power of the
world˘s leading database to:
* reduce server costs by a factor of 5,
- reduce storage requirements by a factor of 12,
- improve mission critical system performance by a factor of 10,
- increase DBA and Developer productivity by a factor of 2,
- eliminate idle redundancy in the data center
To quote Ned Pepper in True Grit (it's a really old John Wayne movie for those of you too young to have heard of it):
"I call that bold talk for a one-eyed fat man."
I mean, I can't wait to try out some of the new features, and no doubt there are some very interesting enhancements, but seriously, how did they calculate all those numbers? Marketing guys crack me up.
