    How come Oracle is so late to release 10g for Windows system?

    stability problems, maybe?
    An expert is one who knows more and more about less and less until he knows absolutely everything about nothing.

    SELECT 'Windows NT4' AS "Windows NT4",
    'Windows NT5' AS "Windows 2000",
    'Windows NT6' AS "Windows 2003"
    FROM dual;



    As for the delay, unlike the UNIX/Linux versions which are essentially ports of the same code base, the Windows version has a separate development path.

    In addition the Windows version includes many additional features related to Windows integration which must be present to allow the marketing people to claim it integrates as well as SQL Server.

    Result: 3-6 months delay in releasing the Windows version of the database.

    Conclusion: Move to Linux, it works great and the software is released in a reasonable timeframe. In addition you are not lining the pockets of the beast!

    Cheers
