Oracle affirms long-term commitment to Linux
Author: JT Smith
From an InfoWorld story: "One of the bigger challenges Linux has faced in gaining acceptance as a platform for enterprise-class services is the lack of applications and support from big-name software vendors. Oracle recently released a complete Linux port of its Java-based Oracle Internet Application Server 8i (Oracle iAS),which represents the last piece of Oracle's foundation technology to be ported to Linux." InfoWorld interviewed Bob Shimp, senior director of Internet platform marketing at Oracle.
