[CentOS] any significant differences between centos and OEL?

  someone just pointed out to me that there is a distro called "oracle
enterprise linux" which is effectively a re-branded RHEL, so i'm
curious -- has anyone here used both centos and OEL and would there be
any differences that would be worth caring about?

  the only thing i can think of that might be worthwhile is that OEL
might change some of the default kernel parms thru /etc/sysctl.conf
that make that distro more appropriate for running large oracle
databases.  beyond that, i have no idea.

  thoughts?
