In April a friend of mine was at some Oracle conference or so and after the
event he talked with an Oracle man. He told my friend that Oracle 'due to
popular demand' really consider porting their database to Linux after 2.0
shows up, and maybe even selling it for less money (rather hard to believe)
than for other platforms.

Even if there are no so plans I think it's nice that Oracle official
know about Linux and that kernel 2.0 is coming soon (again, it was April).
