Oracle and MySQL in the Linux space

Oracle and MySQL in the Linux space

Do you think Oracle's offering of their own version of Linux means that they will push MySQL out of the Linux space? Do you think IT shops will prefer the "one-stop shopping" convenience?

Much of the decision to implement MySQL or Oracle will depend on the licensing structure and portability. If the

IT world gets the impression that Oracle's database will be reliable only on an Oracle OS, or if it costs too much to roll out an Oracle-dependent product, they will be loathe to commit their data. On the other hand, if the Oracle OS proves to be reliable and functional in its own right, and the Oracle database remains as versatile as it is today, an all-in-one package will appeal to some percentage of the market.
