This whole discussion is nonsense. What is the motive? If Oracle
wanted a Linux distro why not grab openSuse and start adding their
goodies? Why pay millions for Novell? Or Redhat? I don't see it
happening. Maybe testing the waters to see what the reaction to an
Oracle distro might be but I don't think they're going to buy Novell
for SUSE Linux -- maybe OpenExchange or something but not Linux which
already is so readily available.

That's my $.02.
