Oracle Database 10g Express Edition - Free to develop, deploy, and
distribute

Source: http://www.oracle.com/technology/products/database/xe/index.html 
 
Oracle Database 10g Express Edition (Oracle Database XE) is an entry-level,
small-footprint (150MB) database based on the Oracle Database 10g Release 2
code base that's free to develop, deploy, and distribute; fast to download;
and simple to administer. Oracle Database XE is a great starter database
for: 

Developers working on PHP, Java, .NET, and Open Source applications 
DBAs who need a free, starter database for training and deployment 
Independent Software Vendors (ISVs) and hardware vendors who want a starter
database to distribute free of charge; Educational institutions and students
who need a free database for their curriculum; With Oracle Database XE,
currently available as a Beta release for Windows and Linux, you can now
develop and deploy applications with a powerful, proven, industry-leading
infrastructure, and then upgrade when necessary without costly and complex
migrations. A production release is scheduled for late 2005. Oracle Database
XE can be installed on any size host machine with any number of CPUs, but
this free version of the world's leading database will store up to 4GB of
user data, use up to 1GB of memory, and use one CPU on the host machine.
