“Unbreakable Linux”?

Although I do not trust Linux in every scenario and application, Oracle has just made a pretty great announcement (and cheeky too!) to provide enterprise support for Linux (Oracle DB or not) for Red Hat installations at rates beating Red Hat’s own prices with more than 60% and the best part – they backport bugfixes like Sun has always done and can provide a before unseen indemnity support for Linux IP lawsuits… this is very exciting I think!! Larry Ellison’s presentation was quite good too (link on Oracle front page) and hopefully it will all mature the Linux market a bit;
