Does anyone still use any rel7 dbs? Amazing! I've been on LMT uniform tablespaces with a suitable size since rel8.1 and haven't looked back since. Have yet to do a complete db re-org since upgrading all to 10g. Now on 11gr2 and looking at 12 next year. And all bigfiles, too: fed-up with heaps of file units open in *n*x.
