Well, if you are a dinosaur, then I must be too. But then again, I've been on the wrong end of an Oracle Licencing audit caused by - if I remember - patching are re-enabling all the extra cost options that I had carefully disabled at the original install. Most annoying indeed. I do not trust Oracle at all these days.

I agree too that the less there is installed, the less there is to patch, with hopefully, less downtime where downtime is needed for patching.

Just my £0.03 (£0.02 + VAT)
