Oracle 8.1 on 2000 server

Oracle 8.1 is installed as part of my app on Windows 2000 server.  Fast
question is should the app and oracle be stopped when applying patches
to Windows 2000 server?  My concern is that the patching process may
interupt Oracle services.

Many Windows Updates will require a reboot to fully install.  The best
practice is to issue a SHUTDOWN IMMEDIATE before installing Windows
Updates.

Sometimes I wish that I could just sit back on 8.1.7.4.x on w2k and not
have to deal with issues like negative elapsed values for wait events
on x86-64 capable processors on w2k3 r2 and ora-7445s on updates
against instead of triggers on 10.2 that necessitate setting
optimizer_features_enable=10.1.0 as a work-around.

Oh yeah, and issues with cursor_sharing != 'exact' when upgrading to
10.2. I wouldn't want to forget that.

But where is the fun in avoiding all that?

I've always stopped the oracle services prior to applying OS hotfixes
and Oracle patchsets, patches (to that home).
