Finally I had the time to install the new release on my virtual machine. I first installed the new Oracle Enterprise Linux 5.4 and then Oracle Database 22.214.171.124 Enterprise Edition. After the usual Linux customizations (less than the last time, though), the Database installation itself was pretty fast & easy. Boy that was much harder in the old days with version 7 🙂
From an Oracle Instructors perspective, one major improvement of the new release is very obvious and needed: The links of Database Control are no longer in this incredible bad visible light blue! That was quite a problem, especially if you are teaching with a beamer. I will come to the other important new features of 11gR2 later on 🙂

I totally agree with you. Each time I would say to my students to do some task in 11gR1, they sonetimes simply couldn’t see it! Farewell blue!

Your OS and DB were 32-bit or 64-bit?

I am on a 32-bit system (OS & Database) with my virtual machine on my notebook.
