Shouldn't be an issue. Go ahead and install Ubuntu/Fedora or any other distro. Oracle for Linux is available. Just search and you should be able to get download files from Oracle site.

Unless you can afford the subscription fee of RHEL you may want to use Centos instead. Centos is RHEL with the logos removed. It is free to download/update(unlike RHEL) and has a five year support life. Fedora is ok but any one version is only supported for 13 months, after that there are no official updates of any kind.

As newcomer, desktop user I would suggest you not to go in for Red Hat Enterprise Linux / CentOS. (In case you missed it, 'Red Hat Linux' as a distro does not exist. There's just paid RHEL and free Fedora from the Red Hat company.)

Maybe the original poster still needed advice.
