Ubuntu Server vs. Oracle Enterprise Linux
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: October 15, 2010
Having been a long-time Linux supporter, it was a no-brainer for me to push Linux as the OS when it was time to move my company's website(s) from an external host to an internal server. My company ponied up the bucks for an HP Proliant DL180 G5 server (this was about a year ago) upon which I installed Slackware 12.1 (I kinda default to Slackware, although in the past I've also used RedHat on the server and openSUSE on the desktop).
Well, it's now time to upgrade the OS on the server. Perhaps I'm a little late to the game on this, but I just recently found out about Oracle Enterprise Linux 5.5. Bad Oracle ju-ju aside, it looked to be a very good and stable server distro, especially when you consider the availability of Oracle support for it. So I've since installed OEL to a non-production server and have been testing it out. It looks to be a good match for my needs.
However, since installing OEL on my test server I've installed Ubuntu Desktop 10.10 on my home desktop (a 1.86ghz I

Should I give Oracle Linux or Mandriva a shot potentially?
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: April 23, 2012
Hi there guys! I found out that Oracle Linux is free, 'cause I wasn't sure if whether or not it was for a while, due to having to pay for Oracle's other OS, Solaris, if you wanna obtain it, and I'm just wondering if it would be a good idea to at least test it to see if it's a good option for either home or enterprise use, same with Mandriva.
I already know of Ubuntu's home and enterprise potential because the ability to build up from a minimal install is a really powerful asset, especially in enterprise/educational environments, but also in home/personal environments.
Should Oracle's Linux strategy be...Ubuntu?

Virtual Oracle Linux with Oracle tools on Ubuntu host to IPsec remote database
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: March 22, 2012
Hello Ubuntu friends,
I need to use Oracle developer tools on my notebook that is running ubuntu 11.10.
Because Oracle tools are not installable under ubuntu without any problems theres is an idea to run Oracle Linux under some virtual partition under ubuntu.
Have you any idea and reccomentdation how to approach to this problem?
With tools I need to connect to remote database over vpn line or IPsec line.
So Oracle SQL*Net protocol should go from oracle linux partition than over host to the internet connection
( VPN or IPsec ).
do not have any experience with ubuntu possibilities for virtualization.
There is also Oracle solution for virtualization Virtual Box , but I am not sure if this is working under ubuntu and if I would gain any advance according to ubuntu partitioning software?
Thank you for any direction, experience and help.
It is the long time goal to set up this architecture so that I can use stable architecture
for work as for home use. So deeply apreciating any hi

Larry Ellison announced, what I believe, is a fork of RedHat. The following is the link to Oracle's linux:
Edit: As Rick pointed out, it actually is a support program that Oracle will be offering which competes directly with RedHat's.
Oracle Linux: aggressive
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: February 16, 2012
I just noticed the existence of oracle linux. Quite some things caught my attention, mainly the aggressive style. Traditional players in the gnu-linux scene, as Novell or RedHat, are directly attacked. I think this kind of advertisement is forbidden in my country (at least once was). Some links:
RedHat mentioned a hundred of times per page here.
Explicit mention to Suse here. Seems that Dell migrated from Suse to Oracle linux.
Apparently, Oracle makes a lot of contributions to linux, including leadership (modesty?, why?). Does anyone remember the great contribution of donating OOo to Apache?
Well, sorry for the sarcasm. I simply don't like the style of these guys. If anyone has anything to contribute/clarify/say, please share.
