Default RES: Oracle on Debian.. or Red Hat?

Mr. Guzman,

You are correctly in your answer.
I had
the same problem, as the major Server´s vendor just homologated Suse or RedHat.
And at that time I asked help to DELL and ORACLE, but their technicians acted as
robots, following the guidelines not listening anything I said.

And Mr. Bergeró , nowaday it is better have a good
extra-support provided by Oracle,*and it is directly related the OS you

caveats, as the decision is up to

later due to a manager's paranoia. Just be sure you are using the same library
versions that the supported redhat offers. But test for yourself as Carlos
suggests to be sure.

* OTH, you may entice your sysadmins to play
with redhat by suggesting them that being savvy in it may add value to their

* If you choose to go the redhat way, I suggest you use the
oracle version of redhat (oracle enterprise linux), as they've made it
ridiculously easy to install and support their products (yum repos and a package
called something like: oracle-install-ready.rpm).

* Good
