LXer: Linux Is Almost as Popular as Solaris for Oracle Databases

Published at LXer:

Applications tend to drive platform choices when all other economic factors remain equal, but since 2000, all economic factors have not remained equal and that is why Wintel and Lintel platforms took off as RISC/Unix platforms were too pricey for some IT budgets. It is now six years since the bottom fell out of the worldwide dot-com economy and IT budgets felt the crunch, and Linux is so established that it is about ready to draw even with the darling of the dot-com era, the Solaris platform, among Oracle database customers.
