If your in the biz and use Oracle 9i, 10g, you know that on a monthly basis it's patch, patch, patch, refresh.

Be fair. How else would Oracle be able to justify the exhorbitant support fees they charge you unless you continuously patch to a minor version of the software that looks like a very, very long prime number?
