OracleWorld.jpgThe keynote is still going on and I have to admit my mind is really turning on this announcement. UnBreakable Linux 2.0 support is a huge open source announcement. I'm curious to hear from readers what you think about this. Oracle will capture the market without a doubt, they have a team of experts large enough to support this and it will clearly drive adoption at the enterprise level and have an effect on Microsoft in these markets. They have made it cheaper than the RedHat solution and during the keynote they demonstrated how to convert from RedHat to Oracle in less than 90 seconds. Its not a good day to be at RedHat but its a very interesting day for the open source world.

It seems tha tOracle's dominate the world stratagy is taking another step forward. They have wanted to have an operating system for a long time and its clear they intend to do just that with Linux. I am impressed by the stratagy but worried that its this easy for a corporation to take over an open source solution. Redhat put out a response at this address. I think they are going to be in a world of hurt.
