Actually, not a bad point at all!
It sounds incredible but nowadays Oracle looks more and more like a second incarnation of CA...

Tell me about it! Just spent this week doing mostly nothing but recovering my normal desktop environment at work!
 From the smouldering remains of a "forced" Windows 7 upgrade.

I just told the Wintel boyzz the next upgrade they force me to take, I'll do it myself and it'll be to Linux: I'm 200% sure it'll create less havoc!

Who is the imbecile at M$ responsible for Win7 destroying the registry? And apparently with Win8, NTFS goes as well and needs a reformat. Like hell I'll ever install that one, mr M$!
