I guess this is the wrong group to ask if you want to move away from Oracle.

The more nonstandard Oracle-specific features you use, the harder it gets. The more similar your targeted DBMS is, the easier it gets.

[Quoted] I'd consider PostgreSQL, because a) there is a stored procedure language not too different from Oracle's, b) it is the best open source database around, and c) it does not belong to one company.
