OK to spec SE for new projects, but what about those of us with declining revenues? We would love to downgrade our licenses from EE to SE, and keep oracle, but oracle will have none of it. We are asked to shelve all of our EE licenses and buy new SE licenses. All of that money for our EE licenses in the trash can.

At that juncture, Postgre/MySQL or even SQL Server start looking mighty attractive.
