[News] Oracle Denies Forking Red Hat's GNU/Linux Implementation

Hash: SHA1

Oracle: We're Not Forking Red Hat Linux

,----[ Quote ]
| Yet, as it turns out, Oracle Enterprise Linus's binary compatibility does not 
| mean that its version is entirely identical to Red Hat's. In fact, there are 
| some important differences, including support for a key file system 
| technology.   


Old headline was: Is Oracle Forking Red Hat Linux?

Video: The seeds of open source

,----[ Quote ]
| Sometimes open source ideals make for the strangest–and most wonderful–
| bedfellows. We met Dr. Vandana Shiva–physicist, scientist, environmentalist, 
| and activist–several years ago. Her work saving seeds and protecting 
| traditional knowledge in the farming industry parallels the openness, 
| transparency, collaboration and freedom of open source ideology. Her simple, 
| clear explanation of why knowledge should be shared–and the devastating 
| results should it be hoarded–is part of the essential truth that makes the 
| work we do so incredibly important. But don’t take our word for it.       



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."   


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.  


Oracle's got a giant Red Hat fork coming, says spaceman

,----[ Quote ]
| Oracle's assault on Linux looks to take the shape of a fork in the near 
| 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 ]
| Canonical Ltd. CEO Mark Shuttleworth said a partnership with
| Oracle is no longer a matter of if, but when.

Version: GnuPG v1.4.9 (GNU/Linux)
