Amazon has a history of taking the long view about ROI, but for the rest of us, cost-of-change is a very big consideration.

Amazon had a major PR motive in eating their own dog-food, and quickly. If you just wanted to get off of Oracle quickly, you can do a more modest conversion to EnterpriseDB, with its Oracle PL/SQL compatibility layer (on top of PostgreSQL).
