Oracle certifies OEL6/RHEL6 for Oracle Database 11gR2 and Fusion Middleware

Oracle yesterday announced certification of RHEL6 / OEL6 with Oracle Database 11gR2 and Oracle Fusion Middleware 11.1.

Moreover, Oracle will from now on provide errata packages for free. Until now, they could only be obtained with a valid ULN support contract. I think this will be a big plus for Oracle Linux in competition with Red Hat Enterprise Linux.

I wonder how long it will take before they ship Exadata and Oracle Database Appliance (ODA) with Unbreakable Kernel.
