Oracle CEO: Linux Support Program Working
Oracle Corp. has gotten off to a "very strong start" with its support program for users of Red Hat Inc.'s Enterprise Linux, according to Oracle CEO Larry Ellison.
Ellison announced the program back in October at Oracle's OpenWorld conference in San Francisco, but since then the company has declined to comment on the progress of the support offering aimed at both Oracle and non-Oracle users.
"This is just the beginning," he said Tuesday during a conference call with analysts to discuss Oracle's third-quarter fiscal 2007 results. "We're not going to build a Linux business overnight, but we will build it. We're determined to offer the best support in the world."
