Mr. Know-IT-All's answer is:
Ellison told the OpenWorld audience that his company wants to support Red Hat users because the open source Linux operating system is a major component of Oracle's plan to propagate the use of grid computing architectures. Oracle is so committed to grid, he said, that the next version of Oracle's flagship database -- Version 11g -- will support 128 PC server database grids. But, he added, in order to increase the adoption of grids, Oracle first needs to help increase the adoption of Linux. And that means breaking down the remaining barriers to Linux adoption, including long waits for bug fixes and high prices for support, he said.
