Red Hat on Oracle Enterprise Linux

Howdy all,

I’ve met up with some people from Red Hat in the past years due to my work. Few times the subject of Oracle Enterprise Linux has come up. They keep telling me it is built from CentOS sources and therefor lags way way behind RHEL on security updates etc.

As much as I hate the idea of Oracle Enterprise Linux I hate lying more. Oracle Enterprise Linux was at first built from CentOS sources, back when OEL first came out. Since then quite a few things have changed…..and one of them is that Oracle seems to be building stuff right from Red Hat sources now ;-).

Red Hat: Stop lying to customers when bashing Oracle and just keep on making a quality product !
