If the OP is running on Windows

If the OP were running on Windows, would he really be using Oracle? Isn't that kind of like mounting a thousand-dollar DSLR camera on a $15 tripod? I mean, I know it's possible, but...

    Well, he may be writing client software on Windows that needs to talk to an Oracle DB on Solaris or Linux.
      he may be writing client software on Windows

      Conceivably, but the thing is, he gave absolutely no indication that he's on Windows. (If he had, I would have been less likely to make such a potentially inflammatory remark, however true it is.) The other poster just guessed it out of thin air, perhaps because it's a subject he knows something about. Then a whole subthread developed about that and dominated the discussion. But it probably has nothing at all to do with the original question. Granted, it's hard to be really sure, because the original question is pretty vague. But all else being equal, if the question is about Oracle, I would tend *not* to assume Windows.
