Oracle and their partners did

http://www.windowsitpro.com/Article/ArticleID/23229/23229.html (10,000 users
on an oracle on linux system in 2001!)

and so on. Then there were the posters, the magazine ads and so on. Of
course it *could* be that SUN and Oracle Mag were using the slogan and logos
in ways unauthorised by Oracle.Corp but don't bet on it.

and then of course it applied to 9.0.1 where can't break in actually meant
can't break in without create session privilege :)

My take has always been that the linux program was a sideline to the
marketing agenda.
