This gives out a real bad name to Linux community. According to zdnet Australia:

One of the first converts to Oracle’s support for Linux has revealed the public backlash it has endured since their decision to drop Red Hat.

Melbourne company Opes Prime Stockbroking told ZDNet Australia that in the weeks following its announcement to adopt Oracle Linux, upset Linux enthusiasts phoned, e-mailed and wrote about the company online to complain at the decision.

“People called us out of the blue to tell us we were idiots,” said Opes executive director Anthony Blumberg.

Opes is one of the few known Oracle Linux customers in Australia.

Remember Linux is all about choice and freedom, so everyone has right to select any distro! What do you think? (found via digg)
