IBM IBM is not ready to guarantee that its computer programs are compatible with Oracle's recently launched version of the Linux operating system, an IBM spokesman said on Friday. This means that if IBM software programs turn out to be incompatible with Oracle Enterprise Linux, then it will be up to Oracle - and not IBM - to resolve the issue, said IBM spokesman Matthew McMahon.

Their sales model is what's not compatible

Nonsense. Their sales model is what's not compatible with Oracle's RHEL. IBM wants to be in every layer of everyone's pockets: server, os, database, middleware, front-end. Letting someone else take the database and now os (ala Oracle) doesn't make them a happy camper. Someday IBM will realise that Linux has not killed MS, Sun, or HP for various reasons. Then they'll go back to promoting AIX.
