Oracle is:

  1. A company
  2. A relational database management system
  3. A series of technologies produced by Oracle (as in #1)
  4. A set of applications that competes with SAP, Siebel, Commerce 1 etc.
  5. A way of life

Windows is something you look through while wishing you could get at an Oracle. It is also something that occasionally can help get at the data being managed and protected by the Oracle.
