Oracle and Linux October 28, 2006Posted by rjdohnert in Opinions.
While some are quick to call this a bad move and criticize Oracle for making such a move its not a deathblow to Red Hat. From my perspective this will be a good move to Red Hat EL 3 users for when Red Hat cuts support for RHEL 3 because now they have another vendor, Oracle, who will be supplying patches. Oracle is not becoming a Linux distributor but merely putting out patches for Linux. I dont forsee the death of Red Hat nut who knows.
