Not without some sort of windows emulation. Have a look on your linux disk, there are two excellent data bases for linux. MySql and PostgreSql.

nah... oracle is in the proprietary software market. they're the second biggest software company in the world, and they're not about to start supporting open-source platforms. without emulation, which would probably be extremely slow anyway, oracle won't work under linux. mysql is probably the best replacement for oracle.

Why is mysql so popular? from my experience of it it's extremely non standard SQL, very poor checks especially.

Just a note: Oracle has been supported on Linux for quite some time now. I think MySQL is so popular for a few reasons. 1) It's free. 2) It's very easy to install and use. and 3) Because it is missing some of the high end ACID database features it is VERY fast.

I had no idea that oracle had a linux port.....I'd imaging that they don't give it away though...

i should have remembered that... there's been a few posts about the oracle universal installer on this site.

this is what i get for having all those episodes of "friends" taking up space on my cerebral cortex.
