Oracle these days seems to be putting out new versions of their software first onto linux and windows before completing ports to the older standard unix flavors aka hpux, solaris, and aix. So from the oracle marketing focus, there seems to be a strong emphasis on windows based systems.

Is that because it performs so well on those systems or more to continue to take a dent in the marketshare of SQL Server on windows systems? Well there's a lot of opinions in regards to questions like that.

Many of us in the oracle area strongly prefix unix or linux systems for oracle. I will just leave it like that.

Can you get a running functional stable RAC system on windows? Probably so I don't have any relevant production experience in systems like that. Received on Tue Mar 11 2008 - 18:08:30 CDT
