Oracle throws its hat into the small business database ring
ComputerWorld: The software is priced at $5,995 per processor for an unlimited number of users, or $195 per named user with a minimum of five users. That puts the entry point for the product at $975, Woods said.

Is Oracle limited on a one processor machine better than SQL Server or the various Open Source databases available? I guess it depends on what you're doing. I just find it hard to believe that anyone that can get by with Oracle on one processor couldn't use an Open Source database.
