Unix and Oracle are not competitive products. Unix is a multi-user, multi-threading enterprise operating system. While Oracle does offer an o/s, their primary business is enterprise databases and application tools. In fact the vast majority of Oracle databases are installed on Unix systems. I would say that if you want to be a programmer, learning a core language like c++, or java would be a good first step. Then you could move into database programming with Oracle or PowerBuilder. Unix programming is primarily done in C/C++ but also in most other languages (including Oracle's development environment Developer/2000). I would suggest a short course in Unix, this would train you to work with the o/s that most enterprise applications are developed on.

Unix a is a operating system, oracle is a data base.
Their are not competing product, Oracle need some sort of operating system and harware to run (in fact, Oracle is an application) and normally is a SUN/Solaris OS.

In Italy Oracle DBA (data base administrator), if higly skilled, has a good income.

If you wish to become a DBA a little unix knoledge is required.

Answers 1 and 2 are correct. Oracle is a multi-platform database. So, if you learn Oracle, you learn Oracle for NT, Windows 95, Solaris, HP-UX and so forth. For the most part, you cannot tell which platform the Oracle tool is running under becausethey have done an excellent job of porting the code to many different platforms.
So, to answer you question about careers choices, Oracle would give you the greatest opportunity because once you have learned it, you would be employable for more sites than if you specialized in an operating system.
