    I am in the process of learning oracle 9i DBA. I want to get the oracle9i software to use for home self-study, and I want to know
    what operating system is most used in the market. Should I get Linux, some flavor of Unix, or use windows xp ? Also where can buy the O/S should Linux or Unix be the route that is recommended? I currently have windowsXP.

    P.S. I am a novice in Oracle and any other OS except windows, I'll need all the help I can get.

    Thanks in advance for all your help.

    For commercial use,I would definetely go with Solaris. But as far as I know there is no ORACLE version for intel solaris. So, if you want to work on a PC, Linux is fine. Both SuSE and Read Hat will work with ORACLE.

    The ORACLE sql*plus commands and most of the databse handling is the same for microsoft. However, since most companies run ORACLE on a unix based server, it's better to install it on a unix system and learn to work with it.
