Which brings me to another point. Why does Oracle
- use such an outdated version of the rdbms (one that is buggy to boot)?
- not provide the necessary software for downloading?
- in general, why is support for Linux so shoddy?
The last one is a prickling one - see my other post about Oracle Linux Support.
But, just in case you were getting the idea that I was being critical and unappreciative, let me make it very clear that I am very happy and very excited to take another stab at the OCM. I have been practicing a few times over the break, and continue to do so. Should be good. What happens if there is another "technical difficulty"? *grin*
In closing, I am very curious what the 10g OCM is like. Our proctor, Jay Norton, had a primary role in writing and creating the 10g OCM, and he said it was even more difficult than the 9i practicum. Does Oracle Education offer a fee waiver or subsidy upgrade OCMs? =)
