On the eve of Halloween, Oracle has asked sysadmins to send it horror movies, or at least screen-capture videos of the issues they want Big O's support teams to solve. Oracle has a name for this service: Demo It To Oracle, or DITO for short. The idea is simple: rather than try to explain a bug to an Oracle service chap, or …
IMO, Oracle has been a horror-show right from the git-go.
That's why I don't use it, or recommend it. Anywhere.

Oracle licensing model, brings me out in a cold sweat just thinking about it.
Re: The horror......
Having been though an Oracle licensing audit myself I feel your pain!

That should be enough
Record a bull session between sysadmins...
About how much of the IT budget is hoovered up paying Oracle maintenance fees :)
