While I applaud the warning - one should always have an oracle-qualified
first aid person on standby when investigating oracle pricing for the
first time - things mightn't be *that* bad:
If only a few people are going to actually /use/ it, he might be able
to get away with only a dozen or two `named user single server'
`two-year' licences. While still a few grand (even for the `enterprise
edition'), at least it's not a few hundred grand.
Mind you, I'm sure it would be appropriate to have a chat with oracle's
sales team before parting with cash and/or settling on postgresql.
