One thought on “Red Hat to Oracle – Buzz Off”

  1. Thats not an accurate assessment. The red-hat numbers are skewed. Besides Oracle is undergoing a lot of changes and most customers i know are waiting for better clarity on the future direction. The fusion platform, whenever it is released would be benchmarked for Ub Linux and that would perhaps lead to higher adoption. Besides we are not talking desktop apps here, these are ERP/CRM systems and the effects would be seen in long term. People don’t download and start running their ERPs on a new OS overnight. what Oracle wants to sell is Support for OS/Database and applications. Support by far is a major source of their revenue and this is one way to add more to that. There is not enough reasons for Redhat to gloat, not just yet.
