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.

First off, there SRPMS are available from the same place as their 4 binary CDs .. so they are making their source available.

If they make the Binaries available for free download (which they have), then they must also do the same for the SRPMS (which they also have).

You are also wrong about Red Hat ... there enterprise source is available on this public server:

http://ftp.redhat.com/pub/redhat/linux/enterprise/

(with updates here)

http://ftp.redhat.com/pub/redhat/linux/updates/enterprise/

Also, I would like to point out that Oracle used several CentOS SRPMS (at least up2date and redhat-artwork).

After I compare all the SRPMS, I will know if they used any others from CentOS.

(Nothing wrong w/ that ... but I wish they would give CentOS some credit too if they are going to use our SRPMS).

Thanks,
