Databases Red Hat has officially responded to Oracle's 'Unbreakable Linux' move. "The opportunity for Linux just got bigger. Oracle's support for Linux reaffirms Red Hat's technical industry leadership and the end of proprietary Unix. It's no accident that Red Hat was chosen #1 in value two years running. Want to know what else we think? Read on." This article has more reactions.

Given that most of their revenue is derived from support and Oracle will now be playing in their pond, this can't be good news for RHAT.

As a customer, though, I like being able to choose between a number of vendors for support contacts.

This will reduce prices and increase quality.
