Oracle and the World of Open Source

According to this article, it only takes a few words from Oracle CEO Larry Ellison to sink stocks…not Oracle stocks, but Novell.

Mr. Ellison gave indications that Oracle will be re-distributing RedHat Linux, the world’s most popular Linux distribution.  The idea is a forked RedHat, where the OS is RedHat compatible, but cheaper, and hopefully made to work with Oracle over all else.

In the article, it is also mentioned that Oracle is looking to buy either BEA Systems or BusinessObjects, the largest Business Intelligence vendor, which is something I mentioned Oracle is going to be very interested in in the next year.
