Grid Control  - 11G or 12 (cloud control)

I am finally going to get with the times and install grid control - I was going to download the 11G version (my databases are a mixture from to 11.2.x) but I see there is no 64 bit version for it, and the version 12 is out.

Given the variety of databases I have on it (last 9i holdouts will be upgraded soon, one of them to 10G though), which version would be best to go with?

The machine I want to put it on is windows 7 64 bit.

    I dunno which, been asking myself the same question.

    After a quick scan on the EM docs I'm going for 12c, the CPU/PSU patch requirments looks to be quite a bit less brain-strain.

    12c OEM uses 10.3.5 WLS, patching that component is very different from "the usual" PSU patching.

    OMS software is only available with EM 12c. Pre-12c, only EM agent software is available on 64-bit Windows, OMS software is neither available nor planned for 64-bit Windows.

    If necessary, see the following MOS note:
    Release Schedule of Current Enterprise Manager Releases and Patch Sets (Doc ID 793512.1)

    According the certification matrix, currently the following database versions are certified (as managed targets) with EM 12c (,,,,,,,
