Somebody pointed out on the Fedora list, if you are an Oracle customer 
it can make sense to get the OS support from a one-stop shop, plus if 
you are still worried about SCO you can get IP indemnity.  (They surely 
wouldn't offer the indemnity unless they are pretty damn sure it will 
never be called on, which incidentally is good news for all Linux users).

However as the guy on fedora-list pointed out, what do Oracle know about 
generic Linux server support outside of where it touches Oracle?  Viva 
la Redhat.
