SQL*plus in windows

As you probably know from reading my blog, I don't like windows. I know how to use windows. I use windows, I have had the misfortune of administrating databases on windows, and most of our applications are made to run on windows. Windows runs the world from the everyday user.


I have windows on my laptop, but I have as little as possible running on windows and pretty much my first task in the morning is to startup my SUSE vm client on my laptop and work from there. This is of course resource intensive and with only having a D600 with the possibility of flaming batteries, resources are scarce. There are times on my 1.3ghz w/1 gig of ram laptop I am trying to run 3 oracle databases, 1 EE for windows, 1 EE for Suse in a VM client,and 1 SE for Suse in a VM client. When I do that, lets just say my laptop has difficulties keeping up with the simplest tasks, like keeping the clock in the taskbar up to date.

I was reading one of the threads going on flaming XE at Doug Burns blog -An Oracle XE user speaks and checked out the link from William Robertson. William Robertson is now my hero. I knew the capabilities existed, I had set up things like this for users. But I had never thought of doing something this simple for myself. I am talking about his wonderfully in depth but amazingly simple to do article on setting up SQL*plus on windows . I immediately went a head and configured up my windows sqlplus as he has explained.

Man... it is sometimes amazing how much the simple little things can make your life so much easier.

Oh, and for those of you waiting for an update. The fellows did their duty and dressed as described in earlier posts. I have requested pictures and I have been assured I will receive them shortly. I will of course post them as soon as I can. I was told, it was a banner day at the office, everybody that could be at the office was at the office.

I love to work on Windows and finds it the best operating system. Its not only ease to learn but also easy to use. Not even most of the applications that came out are made to run on it. I have been using SQL*plus on system and its is very easy to use also.
