You can install Oracle direct on OSX, it's only Unix after all. It's a little fiddly on the desktop OSX as the software is built and documented for OSX server, but still works. I followed a guide I found through Google, worked fine. Not sure if it will still work with Snow Leopard ( if you got that ) , but it worked with Leopard 10.5.5 at the time. If it's Intel Mac, you have the option to bootcamp dual-boot too.
Personally, I would recommend any messing about with Oracle on desktops to be done in VM's as it's far easier to blow a VM away when you mess up, simply refresh from your VM backup copies. I like VirtualBox on my OSX kit with Oracle's RHEL clone as guest. Anyway after giving the Jobs way too much money for several machines I am looking for anything to save money for the next Mac hardware upgrades! LOL!

Subject: 11gR1 on MacOSX
So... I'm the proud owner of a slightly used MacBook (Intel). I know virtually nothing about OS X or MAC's, so it's a learning experience. I see that Oracle 10g is available for OSX but I'm not seeing anything for 11g. Am I just stuck with using 10g or does someone out there have some insight for me on how I can install 11g on my MAC?
