Frank, please don't sell him nonsense. You *know* there is no such thing like a certified version for ME.
To the OP: I don't know why you consider hearing the plain truth as flaming. If you want to act like an oystrich and put your head in the sand, go ahead. But DON'T accuse anyone of flaming. If you want to run Oracle on an uncertified platform, it's up to you. But don't expect anyone here to help you out.
