Now, here's something that I didn't know... Apparently, Oracle 10g R2 supports running .NET code just like SQL Server 2005. I found that very interesting. Obviously, this isn't something Microsoft promotes very widely because SQL Server 2005 is their focus, but it's definitely something of interest for .NET developers working with Oracle. I've had to work with Oracle a lot in the past, so I found this very interesting. There are still pros and cons to using this approach, but having the option is what's important. I encourage anyone with a .NET+Oracle environment to look into this and play around with it. I will definitely look into it the next time I work on a project like that.
