I said that Oracle Database does not interest me, because MySQL /
PostgreSQL is enough for my simple needs.
And I couldn' t afford the price of Oracle's commercial database even
if I wanted to use it.

Now, their entry-level Linux support subscription is another thing...
if I start providing commercial services on top of a Linux box I'd
rather pay whatever entry level fee I can to get *some* level of
support (specially wrt priority security fixes). And there ORCL linux
is the most affordable compared to RHEL.

That's what I said and there's no contradiction.
