I just loaded UBUNTO on top of Windows XP. It works fine.
Now I am trying to find and install a demo or free version of oracle so I can get my hands dirty.
I need your help please. Where can I down load a free version of the oracle for UBUNTO.
Please help

Which flavor of UNIX should I install. SO I can work with Oracle.

I also want to play around with UNIX scripting.

Yes, you can install Oracle on UBUNTU.
