Clear indication that Linux has arrived

Oracle’s announcement of providing support on Red Hat Linux is a clear indication that Linux has arrived. Linux, which started out as a hobby among some engineers, is today enterprise-ready and important enough for Oracle to provide support.

Is the Oracle announcement new? Oracle has always provided Linux support through its ‘Unbreakable Linux’ program, and this recent announcement is a deeper extension of that program. And Oracle’s move is primarily targeted at its customers running on Red Hat Linux.
