You are right.

It is pretty difficult to go to, look up the version of the database, and read the Licensing document.

Yup. Few people would actually type or search for 'purchase' or 'store' in the search boxes on the Oracle pages.

I totally agree - once in the store, you have to release your mouse and actually have to type '' to get back to the main Oracle site. Or in the case of Firefox, type 'Oracle' in the URL box and hit enter to force the system to do Web 2 resolution. Horrible that they would make us do that. Horrible.

Feature listings in the store? Nope. You are right, they don't duplicate the 55,000 pages of documentation.

I think you should offer your services to Oracle to help them design a usable web interface. Received on Fri Jul 06 2007 - 11:28:03 CDT
