        Is that a fault of Linux, GNU, Red Hat or Oracle?

        Given known history, I'd bet Oracle.  Perhaps Oracle, but more
probably Oracle.

        Also I gather there is a mismatch between development models. Yes,
Oracle as a black box tails well with Unix as a black box.  GNU/Linux
expects everyone to collaborate in the open.  If you want something that
tails well with GNU/Linux, you should be considering PostgreSQL -- if only
Oracle SQL was standards compliant.

        Yeah, CUPS is overengineered.  Feel free to run lpr-ng or whatever
you like instead.

        All of this is no fault of GNU/Linux.  Again, vendors are not
playing the game.  You should work only with free drivers, preferrably
those where the vendor released full technical specs to the community.
