Oracle Linux saga continues: Part Deux



Apparently it was not just speculation. According to Bill Snyder it seems to be getting closer. Oracle's idea of making its own Linux Distro is a station that is long gone. I would say better take a good look at RedHat. It's in a hot seat and in a very "buy me" situation, since it stole JBoss from Oracle.


Now there's talk on Wall Street that Oracle may use its annual analyst meeting in July to announce its debut as a Linux provider. Goldman Sachs analyst Rick Sherlund took the possibility seriously enough to publish a 36-page note on the subject this week and convene a conference call with investors and independent Linux experts to discuss the matter.


What I don't know if it's just a war of words between Ellison and Szulik or something really what Oracle wants to do. I did mention and warn Oracle against the "I too wanna build my own little Linux distro".

So if its just to hurt each others image and bring shares down then its pretty lame. If that's not the case then Oracle and RedHat can stand together and pretty strong too!
