A few weeks ago I got called in by a client to talk to a 3rd party vendor of theirs regarding some problems they were having. Turns out the 3rd party vendor was Oracle. interestingly enough Oracle was providing a
.Net solution running on Oracle DB to our mutual client. I was a bit shocked. Turns out Oracle does a lot of .Net development. So given Oracle and MS mutual business interests I have no doubt .Net working with Oracle DB is a priority.
