Oracle XE and another's experience

I was reading an experience of a Oracle user who tested Oracle XE, the newest release by Oracle. Oracle XE is the free express version of the big red database, 10G. The database is limited to 4GB and it does not support services like partitioning and other high end stuff. Yet this will be a boon for small companies and web applications (everyone has one now).
I hope it could be used in a grid environment and for testing grids and Oracle. I have not tried but would like to. I need to try and run it on a Linux box since all my work is being done on Linux.
