11g rollout going pretty well
Well, I'll be honest with you. I thought we'd sell hundreds of millions of copies of the new 11g release in the first week. Turns out we've only sold a couple million. Oh, well. That's how the cookie crumbles. The good news is that we're making customers pay for 11g in gold. Safra wanted it that way so we could guard against inflation or something. See picture of the Oracle vault to the right. I actually store the rest of the gold at my house in 100 vaults like this. The Oracle people trust me. They know my house is more secure than the office. But just wait until we release 12g, people. We're going to make this look like pocket change.
