We don't run a large DB on it, but we do have some very mission critical
systems on linux.
All of our monitoring and paging is run from linux using Nagios and OEM.
Our system that dials up all of our hotel sites to get our billing information ($$$$$$) is linux. It's a whole lot more production ready than MS will ever be.

one more question:
It is frequently said here that Linux is not ready for production. ( i used to laugh out load at this; i'm learning to control my giggles but i've about bitten a hole in my tongue)
What are the really big examples of Linux systems? I'm thinking Amazon, Google and Ebay, but it's been a while since I read anything on this. Who else out there is running very large, very critical Oracle databases on Linux?
