Yes, pick the one bad time for CentOS and release 6 and show that in a 
graph. I find it interesting the CentOS is showing as faster than Oracle 

Meanwhile, if this is linux.oracle.com, shouldn't Oracle database be 
included in the 'free version'? If you want something laughable. Anyway, 
Oracle came with some old distro or book I picked up. It was free with 
some strings as I remember, but that is likely a decade ago now. Still, 
shouldn't Oracle linux include Oracle? The word Oracle being synonymous 
with one thing. I might have to do an install if it did and if it was 
free for any use. ;)
