    I hate it so much. Luckily, SQL queries that aren't overly complicated work without changing a thing in PostgreSQL.

    That is all.

    It complains about every little minor thing and gives the most useless error messages anyway.

    Case in point: I created a table, added some data to it, and closed the web-based query editor. I started a new session this week, and now every table I made before is undroppable because Oracle decided to lock them. I can't release the locks, and I can't do anything short of being an administrator (and on top of that, deleting my account and re-creating it) to drop those tables.

    Meanwhile, PostgreSQL accepted the exact same queries, unmodified, without problems.

    Ugh. It's still stupid. Installing it, not by choice, on my home server right now. Given how ridiculously difficult--actually, it never worked--installing the simple client on my Windows laptop was, I shudder to wonder if I'll ever get the basic server running on Linux. And a distribution they don't even claim to support (SuSE 10.1).

    Hi Filburt,

    I've been working for almost 20 years using Oracle... if there's anything I can do to help please feel free to e-mail me offlist (or PM).

    Would need to understand the issue a little bit more first, though.
