Hello People
we are using 10.2.0.1.0 on windows server 2003(it is a licensed version for commercial use)
we are planning to migrate to linux
before we do so, i am told to implement linux on a new test server
so please tell me which linux and which version should i use and
which database version should i download(since this is for testing i will be downloading the version that is for personal learning purposes and does not require a license or a support id)
the new test server is 32 bit
(I DONT WANT TO USE VIRTUAL MACHINE OR VIRTUAL BOX)
thanks
