comment Development environment to manage multiple Oracle databases
Nevermind I think I figured out the difference. Personal is intended to be a one user license running on a single machine. Standard is for a more "production" situation with multiple users / processes etc. accessing the server. So if I wanted to support multiple instances on dev machines, it seems like I would aim at using Personal Edition.

comment Development environment to manage multiple Oracle databases
Thanks Justin. What is the difference between Personal and Standard editions? And yes, we have individual .NET applications that access multiple, distinct Oracle servers (and therefore separate databases). In retrospect, this may have been a bad idea, but we are where we are.

comment If I use Ruby Migrations, do I have to use the rest of Ruby on Rails?
Thanks Christoph. So I can use migrations with "regular" SQL scripts without using Active Record, for example?

comment How to develop line-of-business tablet apps as a .NET developer?
Many tablets allow for you to "install" the web app so it appears to act like an application. So I wouldn't count this out because HTML5 doesn't appear app-like. This seems like the best option to me.

+1 for Decorator. That is what jumped to mind for me.

comment Rule of thumb for cost vs. savings for code re-use
+1 for YAGNI until there is a real re-use scenario. This philosophy hasn't led me astray yet, whereas trying to guess up front about reuse definitely has.
