Databases "No one saw this coming. People talked about Oracle making its own Linux, or buying a Linux company (Ubuntu?). But, the news that Oracle is erasing Red Hat's trademarks from Unbreakable Linux and supporting it for less than Red Hat is a bolt from the blue. Or, perhaps, I should say that Oracle is firing a shot at the heart of Red Hat, and commercial Linux? This really, really ticks me off." Apparently, Oracle announced that they will provide full enterprise support for Linux and so it competes with RH.

Totally agree.

Also, he goes on to say that Oracle are rubbish at releasing bug fixes and that we can expect more of the same with "Oracle Linux" (Oraclux? Linacle?). This is a moot point because if the service is bad, people won't buy it.
