Sorry in advance if this question is not in the correct zone.

I would like to install some relatively recent version of Oracle on my local computer.  To play around with and re-familiarize myself with it.  I've used other databases recently, but haven't used Oracle in a while.

Can anyone recommend the simplest version/install? Feel free to speak slowly, because about all I remember is a few problems with listeners and config files and of course .. scott/tiger ;)

To start with; you can install the exress edition of oracle 10g. It comes with a pre-configres database. Easy to install. No configurations required. See this link for free download:
