One option is to get an OTN login and download the real Enterprise Edition database. It is not crippled in any way nor does it stop working after a certain time.

It is just subject to a licensing agreement that basically says "I am not developing a commercial product with this download" ... just experimenting.

That version has a fully fledged GUI based console.

You could then get familiar with that version and then eventually see if you like that better than the totally free version. Received on Sun Sep 06 2009 - 09:56:49 CDT
