I am considering purchasing a mac to do learn unix and do study for oracle certification.


Do you know if Oracle Database will run on the OS X platform. I know 10g is certified to run on OS X Server, but I am trying to figure out if Oracle will run, I am not concerned too much about guaranteed uptime or performance since it is only for education.


Also if it will / will not run, what components are required, or are missing which prevent it from starting up.
