"Who chooses a cloud first then decides later what they want to use? Only idiots. Or MongoDB users"
Or the people paying you money to develop things and have heard about this "cloud" thing and want in. (There are a lot of these)..
I dont know *anyone* who would consider using Oracle for a new project. Even if you can get past the licencing aspect, that Stupid installer needs to be taken out the back and shot, along with the intern who wrote it. (It is ridiculously difficult to install on a headless server, and you have to install unnesseery stuff you will never use again like all the X libraries, and I think its really about Oracle figured out "Program files" on Windows Clients and servers. Its been over 20 years now)
Administration is a pain in the arse, unlike every other modern database. (I remember DB2 comming close, but that was a long time ago)
Its possible at the very highest end, that Oracle may out-perform other databases, but how many people really ever use the full potential of an Oracle installation? Or even a MySQL installation for that matter?
