The question of whether someone can or can not use XE has been clearly spelled out in the wording of Oracle's XE license posted here, posted in the Informix forum, and posted on Oracle's site.

It appears that this real issue is something else entirely. Did you sign a non-compete agreement with Oracle? A simple yes or no will suffice to answer the question of what is actually going on.
