Oracle Download vs Oracle DVD Media

Hello...

I was just wondering if there is any difference in the content between Oracle Downloads and Oracle DVD Media ( Oracle 10g and up )

What I mean, is :
1. Whether the Downloads are the first release, and subsequent bug fixes and updates are only available for those who buys the license

2. Whether there are certain parts are the standard version, and the Oracle DVD Media have the enhanced / faster version, in terms of IO Speed and optimizations

3. Whether there is a scheduled reporting scheme within the Download version where it contacts and submits data about the whereabouts of the Oracle Software Installed and the statistics usage of the database

4. Whether the content within Oracle DVD Media are the more stable version, operates more efficiently

5. Are any of you guys are using the Oracle Downloads for 24x7 operations ?


Thank You,

Thank you,

Perhaps you know what "Support Identifier" is ( in the MetaLink Registration, second page, after you fill in your email address )

I tried to fill in different values, but it always says "Support Identifier" does not exist

One more question :

1. Why there is no download link for Oracle 11g for Solaris x86-64 ?

Is that means there will be no more Oracle on Solaris x86-64 ?

Or is it currently not yet certified ?

No statement has been issued either way that I know of.

However, 11g has been out for a while now, so I think the lack of port to that platform is itself rather telling.
I started with Experts Exchange in 2004 and it's been a mainstay of my professional computing life since. It helped me launch a career as a programmer / Oracle data analyst
