Oracle Adds Features to Linux, Validates Configurations

,----[ Quote ]
| Oracle has also done other things to make Oracle Enterprise Linux different, 
| such as porting Novell's Yet Another Setup Tool (YAST) system configuration 
| tool from SUSE Linux to RHEL; Oracle did this and launched it a few weeks ago 
| because YAST is a good tool and some Linux users prefer it. The company has 
| also announced that Chris Mason, an Oracle employee, is spearheading a new, 
| scalable file system for Linux called Btrfs, which will be distributed under 
| the GNU General Public License v2.       


.NET Apps, WebSphere Portal, and Linux Servers in the Same Sandbox

,----[ Quote ]
| Interoperability may be the most used word in an IT industry that was built 
| on proprietary systems. It's the ultimate insult to be labeled 
| proprietary--the equivalent of inflexible. The scarlet letter is "P." So it 
| may come as a surprise to many who keep a keen watch on interoperability 
| issues that the IT department of a large hospital, which uses Microsoft .NET 
| as its application development environment, is deploying an IBM WebSphere 
| Portal on Linux servers.      



A First Look at Oracle 11g database on Debian GNU/Linux

,----[ Quote ]
| Three and half years have passed since my first attempts to install Oracle 
| 10g on an unsupported Debian GNU/Linux distribution. Seeing that Oracle 11g 
| is out, and exclusively for Linux at this time, I decided to download it 
|             ^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^
| among the first and see and share with you what it's installation looks like.   


Oracle 11g ships first on Linux, not Microsoft Windows

| According to Forrester, Oracle's share of the DBMS market has declined to the 
| point where the platform has become less strategic to Oracle, Yuhanna said. 
| "Oracle is already betting on Linux to succeed by putting strong R&D and 
| marketing efforts around it," Yuhanna said. "Simply put, if Linux grows, 
| Oracle grows."   


Oracle opens up latest Linux enhancements

,----[ Quote ]
| Oracle Corp. is busy at LinuxWorld, Wednesday opening up its latest work with 
| the Linux community to improve the enterprise capabilities of the open-source 
| operating system.  


Oracle claims no Linux ulterior motive

,----[ Quote ]
| Oracle is using LinuxWorld to try and calm concerns its Enterprise Linux and 
| Unbreakable Linux Network (ULN) will fork Red Hat and fragment the Linux 
| market.  


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.
