Oracle Database 18: Now in downloadable Linux flavour

Anonymous Coward

I like Oracle database (more than I like Oracle licensing) but always preferred DB2 and I liked AIX virtualisation better than Solaris containers but all of them are also rans now. Intel have won the server wars, ARM is their only threat and open source is taking over data centres. We will be kept busy kludging different solutions together for that 5% of use cases that really call out for specialist hardware/OS but can't rely on a single vendor to be around in a decades time (IBM or Oracle as CPU designers).
