Oracle 11G


Hello Guys
I'm neew to Oracle Database, just want to ask:

Is Oracle 10G/11G free to download, I mean does it require a license? Some Tech people told me Oracle Systems has been bought by MYSQL, is it true?

Thanks for your answers in advance

No its not free to download you need a license to do it.

You can download oracle XE for free.

BTW this is not a right forum to ask this question.

Anything but Oracle XE. And if you've got questions about Oracle licensing, why don't you just call Oracle, and get the answers directly from them?
