If you read this blog via a feedreader you might not have seen my link to Mike Olson's blog. Always worth hearing out, he recently discussed Oracle and Enterprise Linux (here and here). Mike was CEO of Sleepycat, makers of the open source embeddable database engine Berkeley DB, that Oracle acquired. He now looks after our Embedded Technologies.
As a sidebar to the topic, this IBM statement supporting Oracle's Enterprise Linux was pointed out to me.
