Are there any plans to validate Windows Server 2012?

I fear that there will be no database release for 32bit Win anymore - just the client sw will be available.

Thanks, Mike

Hi, unfortunately there won't be any 12c version available for 32bit Win/Linux.

Sorry - Mike

What's the hold up on Windows Server 2012 support? I've got customers that don't understand why this is taking so long to even announce a plan and date. A statement of intent is great, but I think it is time for more details.

I fully understand your position. But please understand as well that I am absolutely not in the position to tell the public any reliable release dates.
And actually I don't have details why it is not supported yet. I've just heard internally it will be supported soon but no dates or details.
Sorry for the inconvenience - you could just either open an SR or trigger your Oracle sales or presales person - maybe they can find out more details.
Thanks, Mike

I have 1 laptop that is 64 bit all my other machines are 32 bits. I wish to run a demo mini system of oracle. This would include a "Gateway" ICS DMZ NAT PC running Linux. Windows 2000 Adv Server 32b. Middle tier with Weblogic server so that It can run forms 11g (does this have to be windows?) And a linux 64b system running the database. All I have is this crude paln I could do with some hard facts about what will work and what will not. I wish someone from oracle would do a mini project where they built a mini system to demonstrate oracle and the toolset for some like me to follow. perhaps someone already has? So many questions like which java version which .Net which Visual Studio ?
