        I think that in some years ( may be 10, 15... ) will be only 1 OS supported by Oracle, and will be mantained by Oracle. Call it Oracle Linux, Oracle OS... Finally when we will need to put a database, we well talk with Oracle and after say the aprox. number of user/transactions/data/purpose... after two weeks we will receive a blackbox containing the cpus, disk, and software 'ready to use'                  

        Ony imagination ;)
