    I've been using Oracle Linux in production for several years, ever
    since 6.8 came out -- it was easier at my job (US Air Force contractor).
    I never had problems with an installation, I was never asked any annoying
    questions when downloading the ISO, and I'm using 7.9 on my backup server
    at home.

    I might replace my home version, but only because I'm curious about
    other distributions, plus 7.9 would only fit on a double-sided DVD.
    (Yeah, I know all the cool kids use flash drives -- I'm old.)

G> But, maybe, it is an irrational fear...

   An "irrational fear" of Oracle the company is a contradiction in terms.

We needed a new capital anyway.  On a side note, would you Brits
mind doing that for us again?            --War of 1812 comment, Spiceworks
