I've been hoping for a version of Oracle that runs on the Mac for some time. Now I see I've missed some presentations given by Apple and Oracle regarding Oracle 10g.

Anyone know anything about 10g on the Mac? What is 10g? Did anyone here go to any of those presentations?

Oracle 10g is just the latest release of the Oracle database server, the successor to Oracle 9i and Oracle 8. The g in the name is just a marketing gimmick, like the i in 9i.

9i was ported to OS X some time ago, and now the 10g port is coming out. The g in the name is supposed to bring to mind the 'grid' notion that Oracle is promoting, where you build a database cluster from a bunch of smaller systems rather than a few larger ones. The Mac G5 servers might provide an attractive platform for doing that.

Thanks, Loren. Guess I missed the 9i database announcement.
