Oracle may distribute Redhat?




Maybe as an Redhat Clone Oracle OS...

I think it (somehow) makes more sense to do that than just acquiring the Linux firm. We have spoken about it at large. Novell somehow also got sidelined when both Redhat and Oracle were kind of pissed. OK Redhat was "unsure" of Xen's maturity and Oracle was plain mad at the virtualization vendors. But it was remarkable that Novell was somehow left out. Oracle and Redhat have finally come to understand that they both need each other. And the fact that there are a lot of production systems running on RHEL, it makes all the more sense to cooporate in that arena.

He added that he believes that Oracle has the legal rights to distribute and support Red Hat Linux, as the CentOS project is already trying to do.


Hmmm..So its going to be more of an OS which looks like Redhat. I'm pretty curious what its going to be like. It may also mean that Oracle Labs already have a showcase Oracle OS.
