This blogger (
http://jboss.org/jbossBlog/blog/mfleury/?permalink=Wall_Street_Oracle_an
d_Game_Theory.txt ) thinks that it's unlikely. His point of view:
 
"Does ANYONE REALLY WANT ANOTHER LINUX DISTRIBUTION IN THE ENTERPRISE
MARKET? Please raise your hands. It turns out in a recent study, that 2%
of ORCL's installed base would want ORCL/LINUX from ORCL... Interesting,
no? If Oracle's existing customers don't really need a Linux distro from
them can you imagine what that picture looks like for those that are not
already in the Oracle customer fold? It is not clear that ANYONE really
wants this third distribution in the enterprise market."
