Re: Do Oracle fans exist?
Certified as Oracle dev, Admin, Java dev... and fan of their Database.. but not their policies.
In the past I had very good deals with them.. we went to the customers either as a team or as a "hidden" team, so we would recommend the hardware and software they wanted to sell, and our services and solutions, and when asked about it, they would recommend us. Of course, we would get a bit of money for that.
Then they stopped giving as the money for essentially selling their stuff.
After that, at some point they wanted money FROM us to sell THEIR stuff. So we dropped them, and they got really angry.
So I would not touch them with a bargepole.. as not only they see their customers as cattle to be milked, but also their partners!!
Anon, as you never know who will be your employer.
