Ellison said that the market was crying out for enterprise-level support for Red Hat at a reasonable price. In a release yesterday the company said: “Currently Red Hat only provides bug fixes for the latest version of its software. This often requires customers to upgrade to a new version of Linux software to get a bug fixed. Oracle's new Unbreakable Linux programme will provide bug fixes to future, current, and back releases of Linux. In other words, Oracle will provide the same level of enterprise support for Linux as is available for other operating systems.”
