One thing to consider is that Forms 6i is no longer receiving Error Correction Support. This means that Oracle will not fix any new bugs in Forms 6i. You can continue to receive support for known issues until Jan. 31, 2008 but experience has taught me that Oracle Support's first comment on any issues will be to upgrade to a fully supported version. I would highly recommended starting with Forms 9i instead.
