So I am not surprised by the answers for the first two questions.

However for the third question I am surprised that 62% favor Oracle Linux.

My limited understanding is that for the most part Oracle Linux is a copy of Redhat Linux. And that Oracle has made some changes to Oracle Linux, but are those changes that compelling? Or is there some other factor that I am missing here?

Thanks,
Chris
