    thank you very much but i don't understand the following from the free version feature..

    Supports up to 4GB of user data
    Is this enough? and how enough is for a small or medium projects like a clinic or medium medical center?

    May be installed on a multiple CPU server, but only executes on one processor in any server
    what does this mean? can I install the database on the server and allow unlimited users to access it?

    May be installed on a server with any amount of memory, but will only use up to 1GB RAM of available memory
    what does this mean?!

    All this means that, if you already spent some time to read first paragraph, you could have read few lines more and check FAQ document too.

    Don't worry, 4 GB user data / 1 processor / 1 GB RAM will be enough for a good start. Develop the application and upgrade (i.e. buy the full version of Oracle database) when necessary.

    I guess you will not even notice those limitations during education / development process.

    However, if you are worried about it, full Oracle version can be downloaded here. It is free to use until you start to make money with it - then you'll have to pay for it. (Note that Oracle XE, on the other hand, is FREE to develop, deploy and distribute).
