CNet news wonders about whether we will soon see a match between Oracle and Ubuntu in some way.
The speculation is interesting:
A trail of breadcrumbs seems to be connecting database powerhouse Oracle with the Ubuntu version of Linux.
The most recent crumb was a report last week by Jeffries & Co. analyst Katherine Egbert. “Our independent checks in the past two weeks indicate that Oracle seems to be close to introducing its own software 'stack,' featuring Ubuntu Linux. We have heard that Ubuntu is currently working to certify its recently introduced server operating system to all of Oracle's major products, including database and middleware,” Egbert said.
