The database giant made Unix versions of its much-anticipated Oracle 10g database available for download from its Web site over the past few days. Oracle typically releases different editions of its database for major operating systems around the same time, according to an Oracle representative, which means that Linux and Windows editions of Oracle 10g should ship within a few weeks.
Oracle is planning to hold a press conference concerning Oracle 10g on Tuesday, when the company is expected to release more product details, as well as shipping and pricing information.
