Approx. 4 months after the Linux release, the Windows version of 11gR2 arrived on OTN silently.

Enjoy!

Lots of people landed on my blog by searching for “10g XE disadvantages”, but unfortunately I don’t have such an article. I mean until now 🙂

xe_logoSo what are the disadvantages of using 10g XE database? :

  • it’s not supported by Oracle support
  • it is working on just one processor core, no matter how many you have
  • it will not use more than 1 GB of RAM, no matter how much RAM you have
  • you cannot store more than 4 GB of user data, hard-coded limitation
