Oracle's mixed messages on "compatibility" with Red Hat Enterprise Linux

,----[ Quote ]
| No offense, Oracle, but if it looks like a fork, smells like a fork, and acts 
| like a fork, it's a fork, and "fully compatible" is simply not a credible 
| guarantee. You can't change someone else's code and crown it "fully 
| compatible."

| market.

| future, according to Canonical founder and Ubuntu chief Mark Shuttleworth. 


Is Unbreakable a long-term Linux play?

,----[ Quote ]
| After initial cynicism I have been forced to rethink my opinion on a couple 
| of occassions, notably Oracle's patent pledge, the naming of customers and 
| the naming of partners, although I remain unconvinced that OEL is a long-term 
| strategy for the company as opposed to an attempt to disrupt the market.   
| Linux is clearly a long-term commitment. Oracle Enterprise Linux? Not sure.


Ubuntu chief: Oracle Linux has 'tactical value'

,----[ Quote ]
| Oracle has the ability to support Linux, and doing so could
| have "tactical value" for the database company, the founder
| of Ubuntu Linux--and a potential Oracle partner--said Friday.


Shuttleworth: Oracle-Ubuntu partnership only a matter of time

,----[ Quote ]
