Oracle - love or hate?

Re: Reading taxi driver says Oracle is better than Microsoft ...

That could mean "pays more". Or "charges more". We know from published accounts that it doesn't mean "earns more".

It says nothing about which company is worst for working with.

ANECDOTE ALERT -

I have personal experience of reporting errors in their software to both Oracle and Microsoft. Microsoft took a month to examine the issue and then got back to me with "yes, you're right. That's a bug. Sorry."

Oracle took two months to get back to me with "Our software is fine. The problem is at your end". Release notes on the next version included a bug fix for the problem which was "at my end".

So neither was particularly helpful but at least MS didn't try to bullshit me.
