Red Hat chides Oracle over Linux

Oracle's venture into the Linux market was called "a bit disingenuous" by a Red Hat executive speaking at the MySQL Conference & Expo on Tuesday.

The executive, Michael Evans, Red Hat vice president of corporate development, speculated that Oracle wants to contain open source.

In the midst of his presentation on the One Laptop Per Child initiative, Evans noted mainstream adoption of open source with companies like Oracle participating in the Linux space. Oracle, however, is "a bit disingenuous in their intentions, if you ask me," Evans said.
