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.

It's not IBM saying that Unbreakable is/isin't Linux. It's IBM saying they haven't tested their apps enough on Unbreakable to know if they work as expected or not. It could be IBM just refusing to support anything running on it, or they might just not have got around to testing it yet. I've never heard Oracle come out and say that Unbreakable is 100% compatible with RHEL.
