Does January 18th have special significance for Oracle?

I saw an interesting post in the Oracle-l list tonight, titled "Jan 18th". Patrice the poster asks if January 18th is a special day for Oracle as this is the day of the first of the quarterly scheduled patch releases and now it seems it is also he day that the new bigger merged Oracle / Peoplesoft company will be launched. Patrice points us to a news article that has been written by James Niccolai and is called "Oracle plans Jan. 18 'launch' for merged company".

Interesting reading for those interested in the merger, is there significance with the first patch release on the same day? - Who knows? - Maybe, maybe not!
