Oracle Announces Java SE 7
and not even supported under Oracle's current Type-1 Hypervisor Oracle VM 2.2

Red Hat — Stand Alone Or Get Bought?
I've been an Oracle Apps DBA for 10+ years and a RHEL admin for about 5.
I have yet to have a single client move to Oracle Enterprise Linux and every client that has considered it decided against it for one reason - Oracle's Support sucks.
Sure, great, I'd get all my support in one place - (strike) India (/strike) Oracle. Unfortunately, that support is horrendous.
I had Oracle work one linux related issue for a client, as a top severity issue with Oracle. In short, Oracle took a week on it, missed fixing the critical issue, and didn't have an analyst available when they said they would (during a mission critical downtime to address the issue).
Oracle Embraces Mozilla
Am I the only person that reads Metalink anymore? Apparently either does Oracle. Jesus.
We run Oracle Apps (11.5.9) with Jinitiator (188.8.131.52) with Mozilla (1.6) on both the windows 2000 and RH Linux desktops at work.
What exactly is the story here?
