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.

I feel pretty sure that this is not going to damage Red Hat at all -- I doubt if Red Hat will see many of its own customers going to Oracle. What is more likely to happen is that Oracle customers discover Linux. The total Linux market will continue to grow -- there are plenty of potential customers out there to support multiple distributions.
