Oracle gives Linux on Intel a boost

"It is the first time Oracle will provide support for an operating system, said Mark Shainman, senior research analyst with Meta Group Inc., and it means that customers running Oracle9i Database on Red Hat Linux only have to work with one vendor to receive support, such as bug fixes and patches.

"This is actually giving some validity for Linux in the enterprise," Shainman said. "One of the biggest apprehensions customers have with Linux is support." More about this announcement at IDG.net.
