    Cool Oreacle licensing for dual core processors

    Hi,

    Is there a reason why we have to pay more for licensing for a different kind

    of processor?

    Why are we not charged for the Hyperthreading on some processors also.

    If Oracle is really conserned about the low end business market (small and

    medium), then they should drop their attitude on Dual Core processors.

    If they start charging as if it was a normal processor, and ask the normal

    price, then they would get more of this market coming in.

    As long as Oracle keeps on having the attitude of charging more, because

    Intel or some other cpu vendor decided to improve their processors because

    of overheating problems, I will have the attitude that I will keep on

    reoccomending alternatives for Orcle like Mysql / Postgre sql / Sybase, etc

    to the small/medium sector.

    Microsoft's pricing model on double core processors suddenly sound allot

    better.

    Oracle are shooting themselves in the foot!

    It seems to be that you don't have buying power.

    I doubt that other vendors will be as generous with their licensing when the chip makers can four, eight, sixty-four etc. cores on a single physical unit.
