IT Reseller Takeaway: Oracle's recent release of Oracle 11g is the database's first update in four years. It should become commercially available for the Linux platform sometime in August and other platforms are soon to follow. While assessing whether an Oracle DBMS update is the best choice for your customers, it's hopeful to hear that beta-testers have give database 11g the thumbs-up as a bug-free release. This tip excerpted from SearchOracle.com gives us the story.
