Internetnews article : Customers Gripe About Oracle's Patch Plan

I have just seen an (broken link now in 2022) - article posted today October 20th 2004 by Michael Singer on website that is questioning the issue of Oracles monthly patch release plan and when the next patch in the monthly cycle will be coming out. Michael has spoken with an Oracle representative who cannot explain the delay to the planned monthly cycle announced a couple of months ago. Michael also notes from his conversation that Oracle will continue with individual releases for critical security issues. The article makes interesting reading and quotes some customers problems from various mailing list postings.
