A blog for the enterprise open source community
Unfakeable LinuxRaven Zachary, October 26, 2006 @ 10:42 am ET
I woke up this morning and checked out Red Hat’s web site, after receiving an email from my contact at Red Hat Corporate Communications. What did I see? UNFAKEABLE LINUX in a mega-font. Red Hat has posted a response to the Oracle announcement. Take a look. At the end of the FAQ page, Red Hat indicates that there is more to follow.
This will be an interesting marketing and PR battle to watch, although I suspect those of us in the open source media and analyst community will end up doing a lot more than watching. Yesterday was an insanely busy day, between our Mark Shuttleworth coverage in the morning and our Oracle coverage in the afternoon and early evening. Many thanks to Nick Selby, the 451 security analyst and open source aficionado extraordinaire for his coverage of the Ubuntu angle yesterday.
What I really want to know is what existing Oracle and Red Hat customers think about the news. Someone in the press should reach out of the user community and capture this perspective.
