Doesn't the label 'arrogant' equally apply to someone calling himself 'Preston' . After all it is 'Preston' who decides his customers should remain in the dark.

[Quoted] What is important to your customers is a supported version of the database, a supported version of the O/S and a supported version of the hardware.
[Quoted] Otherwise they will, when theire servers fall apart, because someone called 'Preston' advised them not to upgrade, not only pay big bucks to replace their servers, but they will be also be forced to upgrade their O/S (as their current crap isn't certified against the new hardware), and their software, including Oracle, etc, etc, etc,

[Quoted] Maybe some customers don't understand this, as they have never been informed by someone called 'Preston', but then someone called 'Preston' 's software policy is full of 'Pennywise, pound foolish' [Quoted] Likely this will put him out of business someday. [Quoted] I can't say I will regret this.
