Oracle being choosy about how they get their revenue is a
bit absurd. They should be happy to get EE licenses regardless
of what the underlying platform looks like. Oracle is the most
widely ported database on the planet. For that reason there are
100% correctness checking test suites that ensure underlying stuff
works. The kit is called Oracle Certification Environment (OCE).
have been using it since late 2001 since we implement the Oracle
Disk Manager Library. 

Oracle reports revenue from database and middleware **combined** now.
That should speak volumes.

If anyone wants more info about OCE, there are some things on my
blog at:
