There are many Windows versions/distributions, you know that.
Linux may be different in a sense, but that doesn't mean that Oracle
should support multiple distributions (*). That would be simply
I just hacked a new distro, it is called "Ramonux", it contains lots of spiffy kernel innovations. Should I call Oracle to demand that they support it?
Anyone who can't/won't spring several hundred dollars for the official supported distribution by Oracle (RedHat Enterprise Edition) should be banished from using Oracle.
(*) and by "multiple" I mean the strict: "more than one". Received on Thu May 08 2008 - 11:34:01 CDT
