Actually, I think the Oracle support cost is a LOT less than Red Hat, which is why they got a lot of initial traction with this Linux offering. I think there was some option that was only $99 a year, but I don't remember the details.

Running Grid Control on OEL 4 update 4(64 bit) for over a year without issue. Only time we've had to shut it down was when they redid the power in the data center. As noted, it's RedHat with the Oracle logo. I think the biggest question might be related to the support one gets from Oracle vs. RedHat. I believe the Oracle support price is a little less than RedHat's.
