Also keep in mind that as of 11.2 (at least on Linux, I think), all the patch sets are full installations. In other words, if you want to get to you do NOT install first and then upgrade. Just throw down and you are done. I wasted a little bit time around this by not reading the documentation fully (which I am sure no one else on this list does). :-)

One of the reasons the ORACLE_HOME path is (base)/product/{version}/{home-name} is so that you can have multiple versions concurrently on your machine. They can all be running at the same time.

The combination of SID and HOME is used to identify the SGA.

So you can have multiple SIDs running form one ORACLE_HOME and you can have multiple SIDs running from multiple ORACLE_HOMEs on the same machine.
