Hi,

Is there a reason why we have to pay more for licensing for a different kind of processor?

Why are we not charged for the Hyperthreading on some processors also.

If Oracle is really conserned about the low end business market (small and medium), then they should drop their attitude on Dual Core processors.

If they start charging as if it was a normal processor, and ask the normal price, then they would get more of this market coming in.

As long as Oracle keeps on having the attitude of charging more, because Intel or some other cpu vendor decided to mprove their processors because of overheating problems, I will have the attitude that I will keep on reoccomending alternatives for Orcle like Mysql / Postgre sql / Sybase, etc to the small/medium sector.

Microsoft's pricing model on double core processors suddenly sound allot better.

Oracle are shooting themselves in the foot! Or am I the only person feeling this way?
