Oracle supports -as they should- exactly ONE distribution for every OS.
- One Macintosh distribution (if they ever supported the Mac)
- One IBM mainframe distribution (MVS)
- One Solaris
- One AIX
- One HP-UX
- One Windows
and, last but not least:
- One Linux distribution
Why should Linux be different?
