Well, that's going to change. Nobody has commented on the elephant in the room and that would be the fact that Google, as one of the largest and most aggressive high-tech companies in the world, is not using Oracle. So, there is life without Oracle. I learned PgSQL and I am not sorry. I can even sell consulting for conversion of small databases from Oracle to PgSQL.
With a problem like Google, Oracle doesn't need disloyalty and ill will among the consultants who used to be its loudest proponents and the most effective sales force. I only hope that Google will adopt PgSQL and renew the sense of competition among the databases.
