    11g for personal education

      I am a database consultant with a number of years of both Oracle and Ms Sql server development expierience.
      For the last 3 years I have been using Ms SQL Server, and as a result, my PL/SQL skills are rusty.
      I want to verify that I can still download 11G and use it for NON production educational purposes only.

      If that capability is still true as it was in the past, can I download 11G from the download site or do I need to get a special license?

          Yes you can download 11g for personal learning for free. There are two versions available -

          The XE version - http://www.oracle.com/technetwork/database/express-edition/11gxe-beta-download-302519.html and
          the full-fledged version - http://www.oracle.com/technetwork/database/enterprise-edition/downloads/index.html

          Pl ensure you meet the minimum hardware/software requirements for both before downloading and installing.

          11g XE can be installed on Win 7 Home Version, while the full 11g version requires Win 7 Professional or higher.
